PAPERTREY INK DECEMBER BLOG HOP CHALLENGE

Hello everyone!  When I saw the challenge for this month's Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  The challenge is to make a project using the color white.  Since I really didn't have any white cardstock on hand, I had to use Rustic Cream.  Close enough to white, right?  Anyhoo, I wanted to emboss on the cardstock with white and it looked nice, but I could hardly see it.  The look I was going for was not turning out so great until......I added a crocheted doily under the snowflake and used some tea dye to antique the edges and make the embossing really pop.  I embossed the snowflakes from the Snowflake Medley set on the card and also on the large die cut snowflake...Lovin' it!!  Then I covered a couple little die cut snowflakes in Mica Flakes...I have had this stored in a box for over a year...HELLO! What was I thinking?  I love this stuff!  Hope you like this card even though it is not exactly white.

This card is packed with dimension.  I love how the embossing adds such detail without heaviness.  It was difficult to catch all of the detail of this card on camera, but I am so happy with how the card turned out.
Thank you for stopping by......
