Believe In The Magic

 Good Sunday morning crafters!  A white on white Christmas card for today courtesy of Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.  I used my Heart Lattice embossing folder to add a simple embossed background for my card.  I decided to wrap it like a present and used white seam binding on the opposite corners before adding a thin silver mat border.  I cut a smaller piece of coconut white card and stamped my sentiment in the middle of it.  I used a clear perfect Medium pad and silver embossing powder.  I cut seven of the holly swirls from the Ornamental Add On die set by Heartfelt Creations and glued them into a wreath shape around my sentiment.  I added Iced Snow glitter and flatback pearls to each of the holly swirls as accents.  I tied a messy bow from white seam binding and added a small pearl embellishment to the centre.  I seated my bow on a piece of white tulle.  Beautifully simple and finished with a double white pierced mat.  Finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.

Now for the weekly Comment game winners.  This weeks names drawn were:
Sheila Ginger!!!
Jane Gray!!!
Joanne K!!!

For the extra qualifying post of Sept. 27th, the winners are:
Mary Moore!!!
Beryl Treble!!!
Amy Richards!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your prize.  Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the card giveaway drawing!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
This card is stunning. I'm quite a messy crafter so white on white with fingerprints doesn't quite have the same effect! However, I think I'll have to try harder and give it another go.
