Angels watching over you

Good morning.  I have another Christmas card to share today.  Again, I bought this set last year but never had the chance to use it.  I know I could of made this card in colour but I choose to do it all white.  There is just something about all white cards I love - maybe it's the crispness and cleanliness of white - I find it very  appealing.

I used the set from PTI called Love Lives Here: Holiday.  

I love when stamp sets have the matching dies!  I started by cutting out the angel and then stamped the angel onto the die cut using versamark and white embossing powder.  Once assembled I pop dotted the angel onto a piece of white c/s cut using Justrite vintage labels five dies.

The background was created with an embossing folder from Crafts-Too - I don't know the exact name of the folder but love all the flourish swirls it provides.  For the star I punch  it out of a piece of WOW light gold glitter paper.  Finished off with some white silk ribbon and pearls.

Another great card to mass produce!

Well, all our snow has disappeared, this weekend we have had rain and temperatures around the 50 degree mark - what a change from 20 -25 last week, but then the cooler air settles in again on Tuesday so back in the low 20's again.

That's it for me today, back again real soon, I have more cards to share.
Thanks for the visit, keep warm and stay safe!

Lovely! When you know how to do white on white right like you do it works. The sparkly embossing is so pretty. Hugs and stay warm!

Oh, how lovely! The all white is absolutely incredibly beautiful, and so is that embossed background. Wow! I, too, love all those flourishy swirls. Gorgeous design with the angel. Makes you wonder how you could have waited so long to use it, doesn't it? I do that all the time. Wild and crazy fluctuating temps this year. We got down to 32 once, but that's as cold as it's been so far.

I agree....this card is begging to be done in all white and you executed it perfectly! Love this set, I have it too and don't use it nearly enough! I always love seeing your beautiful creations, Pauline! :)
