Classic whites.

I've been doing some creating for Tomorows Memories in the last little while...the shop is so full of beautiful things to play with! Gorgeous Christmas goodies have started arriving, so my first mission was to make some Christmas cards...which fits in well with the Christmas creating that is my obsession :)

I love nothing more than white with metallic silver accents for Christmas ...classic, crisp and understated. My pack contained the most divine embellishments...

...which I based my card around. My photo doesn't do the sparkles justice...the accents are all metallic silver.

I stamped the words with Cotton White Staz-On straight onto the silver paper, embossed the background with my Cuttlebug, and cut the flowers with my Slice.
Gold and white is also a favourite (especially when I run out of silver paper hee hee). This little Chritmas tree is by Dusty Attic...

...Tomorrows Memories have a HUGE display of Dusty Attic chipboard, enough to inspire even the most chipboard-allergic person like me! I painted it white, then Glimmermisted in Pearl...which turned it sort-of cream. So I painted it white again (chipboard is sooooo forgiving) and whitened it up with some Crystallina Kindyglitz...that's better!

Again, I stamped the words with Staz-On, and embossed the musical notes with my Cuttlebug.
I have another set all ready to photograph...this time in traditional red and green, with some aqua thrown in. Best go and catch the afternoon light :)

Very classic Susan. You using chipboard-thats a first. Have you used a cuttlebug music folder on the second card? All so very classic and striking.
