The Paper Players #517

 Happy Sunday!  How is everyone coming on their holiday cards?  I am a wee bit behind! We are having a CAS Holiday Challenge at The Paper Players. This is the perfect time to get going on your holiday cardmaking! I have a huge love for white on white Christmas cards...but a huge dislike for attempting to photograph the same!  Adding in a pop of silver glitter seems to aggravate my lack of photography skills!  I am a night time crafter, so natural daylight is just not possible! I promise, the card really pops in person!

To create my card, I first embossed a panel of White Daisy cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder.  I then added the house border and Merry Christmas sentiment from the Yuletide Borders Collection.  The panel was then cut with the Stitched Rectangle Frames.  The panel was matted with Silver Glitter paper for added sparkle. In case you missed the set, the Yuletide Borders Thin Cuts are the perfect addition to your holiday crafting.  Here is the complete set-

All supplies by Close To My Heart:
Z3893 Yuletide Borders Thin Cuts
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Z3239 Silver Glitter Paper
Z4260 Stitched Rectangle Frames Thin Cuts
Snowflake Embossing Folder-Retired

I have entered my card in the following challenges:
