Season's Greetings

It's Monday, which means another new challenge over at Make My Monday!  It's a Potpourri of challenges for December.  This week, the challenge is to create a Christmas Card using a White on White Technique with one of color for accent.  
I believe this is my very first White on White card.  I am so drawn to White on White cards, but have never been brave enough to try one.  Being able to add a touch of another color helped a bit.  A simple card, I embossed card stock using a Sissix Tim Hotlz folder, matted with red card stock and added to my card base.  Some vintage trim was added to the side of the card.  Finishing touches include a paper doily folded and attached to the bottom of the card, a flower made using the Tattered Flowers Die Cut, with a snow flake punch and a pompom.  Bits of white seam binding and a sentiment stamped with Festive Berries Distress Ink complete my card.  I hope you will join in the fun at Make My Monday.  Take care and have a great week.  Best, Yvonne

So classy and elegant Yvonne. The embossing is gorgeous and the way you have such a slim matting of red behind it looks wonderful. Super gorgeous less is more. Nicola x

So elegant.

Hi Yvonne, this is just my favourite card so far of yours. You shouldn't have left it so long to do white on white. I need to do one more card and you have inspired me to do white on white, so thank you!
