It’s time for a new Crafty Friends Challenge. Charmaine is the hostess and her challenge to us is to create a mostly white card, with just a splash of color. I will also enter the card into the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is to use your favorites. Here I used paper piercing, rhinestones, dies, patterned paper and paper piercing.  The layout of the card is from the current CASE Study card by Windy Robinson.

I started by cutting snowflakes out of silver glimmer paper with one of the Snowflake Borderabilities dies.  A 1 3/4″ x 3″ strip of Carta Bella’s Winter Fun patterned paper was adhered to the bottom of a 3″ x 5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock after the edges of the paper were sanded.  The bottom edges were rounded and the edges of the layers were paper pierced.  Seam Binding was tied around the top of the patterned paper and three bells were tied on with silver cord.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half with the bottom corners rounded. A sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Small Folded Banners Holiday was stamped in Platinum Stazon on white cardstock. It was cut into banner form. Want2Scrap Rhinestones finish off the card.
