White (and Red!)

It is the most AWFUL day here weatherwise! Wind is howling and the rain is battering down... glad I don't have to go anywhere!
A white on white card to share today - used up a few bits of white card too (Playground for me then!!)
 
I have some sheets of this leather effect card left (bought it years ago) so used some for this card.
It's quite a nice texture.
This was not only CAS but QAE (Quick and Easy!).

The holly flourish die was one I bought last year and have used it quite a bit.  I cut it out twice using the left over piece from the A4 sheet that I used to make the square card.
The poinsettia is the same that I used on the DT cards this month - (hadn't put it away so thought I might as well use it again!)
Added some red blingy bits to the holly and the centre of the flower and a little sparkly stuff to the poinsettia petals.
Sentiment stamped in Rocket Red.

Got a mountain of ironing to do but am intending to spend some time chucking glitter all over the place later - got to get these Christmas cards made!!

Challenges -
Fab n Funky - WOW
Beccy's Place - CAS
Clear it Out - White plus 1

Your white on white card is beautiful Viv, and it sounds like you had the perfect day to create it! I love the pop of colour you added with the tiny red rhinestones, and I also like the little bit of sparkle you added to the poinsettia. Beautiful!
Cheers,
Beccy

White on white with the tiny splashes of red Viv, how very elegant. Many thanks for helping me out at the weekend, much appreciated.

Fa la la la, la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Stunning card Viv . . . the little red gems really "make" it.

Yeah, best to get the wretched creasing out of the way BEFORE chucking glitter around, despite what I said earlier!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Viv said...

Gorgeous card here Viv,I love that holly die too....had my eye on it earlier but didn't succumb. I gave up ironing ages ago, best thing I ever did, 'smooth and fold' is the way to go. Luckily I don't have OH's shirts to do now so I get away with it, happy days! ;) Viv xx

Love the little touched of red on this otherwise white design. I love this type of card and this is a beautiful version of such a design...

lovely card

Abi said...

Simply gorgeous Viv, I love the burst of red. I have a load of that leather look card but in electric blue...not quite so versatile as the white! xx
