A White-on-White Christmas Card

Hi, everyone!

Hope you're all surviving the craziness of the holidays. I for one have become a big fan of the self-service kiosk at our USPS branch. It sure takes the stress out of mailing those holiday packages.

I'm here today with a card inspired by the current Dreaming of a White Christmas CAS-ual Fridays Challenge. This was the first time to use the SU brick wall mask to create a tone on tone look. I just love this sweet stencil.  :)

stash and Staples white cardstock; DCWV glimmer mat stack
Sue Wilson Creative Expressions wreath die; tiny circles: SU punches; Paper Smooches bow die
Hero Arts sentiment, heat embossed with Versamark and Recollections gold powder
SU brick wall decorative mask, stenciling applied with Wendy Vecchi embossing paste
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way glue pen

Our Christmas-themed Words 2 Craft By Challenge started up on Wednesday. If you sneak away for some crafting time between now and Christmas, we'd love for you to play along. Marty's hosting this month and, of course, there's a prize up for grabs. See you over at W2CB!

In the meantime, have a great week! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
