Whiter than White

I made a whole batch of these yesterday - they were quick to do and I like the CAS style - this week I have gone through various styles - Lots of frills to Vintagey/Distressed back to frilly and fussy and now on to CAS!! For a further change I opted to do 7 x 5 cards instead of my usual 6 x 6!

Two cuttlebug embossing folders, white pearlised card, some ribbon to hide the join (lol), a die cut snowflake suitably blinged with lashings of glitter and a freebie sentiment with a few sparkly gems and voila!!

Last year I was so rushed making my own cards to send and I am hoping to be more organised this year - so the few made yesterday will swell my stash a wee bit.
I did them in two different colours - gold and silver and changed the sentiments on each so am keeping to my 'never make two the same' rule.

Challenges -
Creative Craft - Minimalistic
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Christmas 
Southern Girls - Inspired by a Song (white Christmas)
