White On White Holiday Tree

Hi crafty friends!  Let's see if I can make up for the darkness of yesterday's card and swing the pendulum in exactly the opposite direction (plus, I think there was a request for this card).  White, white and more white (the blue isn't part of the card).  When I first received these dies, I cut the tree out of white card first thing.  I loved it so much, I used the negative piece to make my first card and the actual die shape I used here on my second card.  This card could not be more simple.  If you are looking for a quick but really elegant Christmas card, look no further, this is about as quick and easy as they come.  I covered my piece of white card with a piece of the sticky adhesive paper and rounded the corners.  I peeled the backing paper off and coated it with micro beads.  I added a piece of white silky crush ribbon around the bottom and a double bow on top (with a glue dot)  I glued on a small round Dazzler in the centre of the bow.  Background done.  Glued my Holiday tree die in the centre of the card and added some large flatback pearls, focal element done.  Pierced the edge, card done.  A little tip with the tree, use some wax paper or greaseproof paper between the die and your card and it will fall out of the die for you and speed up the Christmas card making process too.  If not having a sentiment bothers you, one could quite easily be added as a tag hanging from the bow or even just inside your card (if, unlike me, you do insides, LOL).  I was just enjoying the white space on the card and didn't want to clutter it up on this one.  I hope I have properly redeemed myself after the mixed reviews of yesterday's card.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, so different from yesterday. White on white is gorgeous, you brought back the bow, piercing and micro beads, a combination that wins all the time for me. Love the Christmas tree and pearls.

I love this simple look. You could ring the changes so easily by just addding a slight shading of colour round the edges. Love it.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
you don't need to redeem yourself to anyone! Whilst a complete contrast, it is also equally beautiful as the black and gold one. Not so dramatic/opulent but more elegant.

Patricia said...

Good Morning Sue,
Well, what a difference a day makes!!! Such a contrast from yesterday`s great card.
This card truly sings loudly to me, "stunning" I love it.
Got this die yesterday so guess I will have to have a play later to see if I can get an effect anywhere near as good.
Have a Great Day

GM Sue. If there were an olympic event for card design/making you (and Spellbinders!) would take gold medals no question about it! I also now know your cards are naked ;-)on the inside! - something I was wondering about given the fronts are so fantastic. I just love this die and its defintely better than alwhite for me.

Morning Sue, Oh Sue, this card is an absolute STUNNER, love it, love it, love it.

Another big WOW sue though why you feel you have to make up for yesterdays card i will never know- you show a very diverse range of new and exciting ideas for every taste and inspire us all.If anyone doesn't like a card they don't need to use the idea.Oh well as the saying goes you will never please all of the people all of the time but it would be a very boring world if we all liked the same things,take care,x

Christine Harrop said...

Simply beautiful!!! A couple of years ago i did something similar for my bulk cards using an embossing folder tree and changing the colours of the pearls and ribbons to change the look. I really must have this tree die. It is great.

Hi sue what a lovely card got this die haven't used it yet going to start Xmas cards next week this is on my list
Thanks Jayne

Anonymous said...

Hi Sue, Love the card. I have gotten used to the trend for sentiments on the outside of cards, but it is not really me. I feel if you place a Happy Christmas message on the front of the card you need to say a lot more inside & for those we do not know well this is not always appropriate. Besides the Christmas tree on the outside of the card gave the theme away anyway. With love & light Theresa.H

Sue Parish said...

Fabulous, fabulous card Sue. I adore it. Your timing is perfect too, as I bought rolls of both baking parchment and greaseproof paper yesterday (been having a bit of trouble getting the holly die cuts out of the dies and thought I'd try both - used the parchment last night and it worked fine). So I've got everything I need to make this one too. Perfect! Thanks Sue,
Sue x

Christine Hussey said...

Hi Sue, I whole heartedly agree with Kimberley's comment, you never have to redeem yourself so please never think that. We are not all tarred with the same brush so what appeals to one may not to another but where would we be without you sharing your talent of unique ideas and that's why we love our Sue Wilson.

Today's card is stunning Sue and so elegantly beautiful, I think this one is going to be produced many times around the world. Hope you are enjoying time with your Mum and all is well, hugs Christine H xx

Christine Marks said...

Hi Sue, I am new to spellbinding craft, really love it, it has made a big difference to my card making, and my friends love them. Could you tell me what size card you use? I make mine 7 inches and find this is a perfect size. Love to watch you on C and C. your cards are beautiful.

pudlet said...

Just to say one of my favorite cards, simple and elegant. Although yesterdays was different the more I looked at it the more I liked it I think it would make a perect "maculine" card whereas this card is much more feminine. Keep up the good work, you provide lots of inspiration.

Deborah said...

Dear Sue...I remember this card from before and it is still in my top five...white on white and the new tree die...are to die for!!!
You could always stamp a small greeting on to clear acetate and heat emboss using white embossing powder, cut it like a tag and hang it from the tree or even put it at the bottom of the tree like a present.
Have a nice day. Deborah. :)

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Well this is definitely a change from yesterday, but to me it is no better or no worse, they are both stunning.
This is bright and snowy, clean and clearcut. To most I suppose this would be the ideal card being bright white, but I love the contrast between the two cards and find the black to be dramatic and theatrical. They are both so different and yet both beautiful, I personally, could not chose a winner. I love both equally!
Love Linda xx

This is my first time on Sue's blog site and it is fabulous, wish i had found it a long time ago.

I have the xmas tree die but have NOT been able to get a die cut from it without it tearing or getting stuck in the die.

What a gorgeous card. xxxx
