White Christmas

Once started, it's difficult to quit. I continue with Christmas theme for my cards. This time I couldn't stay away from trying out a new theme from Merry Monday - all white Christmas card.

The colour constraints made me think of ways of adding dimension to my card and bringing elements to stand out. I decided to add texture by stencilling with an embossing paste and dimension - through using a negative die cut.

The negative die cut not only brings more dimension through the shades, but also more light if you see through. It looks like a candle light giving it so Christmas touch.

Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!
