I haven’t joined in with Simply Less Is More for ages, and as they want ed Christmas card this week I couldn’t pass that up now could I!!  Their theme is White on White Christmas, which is actually harder than it sounds as there are so many shades of white available.  But using the sketch at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for inspiration, I came up with this:

Interestingly, with the exception of the card blank and the glitter heart, all the other cardstock used is exactly the same, GinaK Pure Luxury White, yet they all look like different shades of white!  I started by placing as many different snowflake stamps on a large block as I could, stamping with Versamark and then heat embossing with TH Holographic Clear embossing powder to make the large backing piece which was then edged in silver ink.  Four squares were punched out and then embossed in different folders, edged in the silver ink again and mounted on foam tape.  The heart is a Provocraft die and was cut from white glitter card.  The sentiment is from a Recollections set and was embossed with Recollections Sparkly EP before being cut out with a Spellbinders die from the Ribbon Trio pack.  A bit of clear white, sparkly edged ribbon was added before wrapping it around the main panel and then popping on to the card blank.
