Dreaming of a White Christmas

Card Making Ideas by Amazing Paper Grace using Quietfire Design - Christmas is the Day, Spellbinders Roman Romance, Spellbinders Curved Borders Two, Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two

Hi there blog friends!!  How about an easy card making idea today?  I’m still quite in the Christmas mood and looking forward to checking another card off my list for my Christmas stash.  Today I decided to create a card that’s white on white.  It’s actually hard trying *not* to slip a layer of color in there!  I reached for a classic sentiment by Quietfire Design by using the sweetly penned Christmas is the Day set.

Card Making Ideas by Amazing Paper Grace using Quietfire Design - Christmas is the Day, Spellbinders Roman Romance, Spellbinders Curved Borders Two, Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two (close up)

I used one my favorite new embossing folders, Spellbinders Roman Romance for the background here.  The round treatment at the top is done using Spellbinders Curved Borders Two.  Last of all, the sentiment is placed on Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two.  Believe it or not, I’m down to two layers in this card….here goes!!

Close up using Roman Romance embossing folder.

So to recap the layers I used from the bottom up, my card base is  5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″, matting layer cut to 5-3/8″ x 7/38″, foam tape, white layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 6-1/8″ – embossed with Roman Romance and adhered toward bottom edge, die cut layer using two cuts of Curved Borders arranged so that open end of curve are facing, die cut layer using Fancy Tags Two.   Attach ribbons, bow, pearls and sentiment on appropriate layer.

    Hello Becca !
    Just logged on and found your latest design…it looks just like a Wedding gown..its so beautiful.
    I don’t think, until you see this folder being used, do you realise how beautiful it is!
    You always make me want to create!
    Thank you for all your inspiration Becca!ReplyCancel

    Oh my goodness Becca, this card is sooooooo gorgeous. I absolutely love love love this one today and feel I´m in heaven, when I look at it. It would be sooo perfect for a weddingcard too with another sentiment and could even work for a Symphaty card as well. I actually don´t think there´s anything it couldn´t work for, if you just replaced the senrtiment with a proper one. I´m really overwhelmed with the beauty in this one.
    Thanks so much for all your awesome inspiration always , I really love your work hun.ReplyCancel

  • Dottie DavisSeptember 21, 2013 - 4:10 pm

    Being a lover of using dies the way you assemble yours is quite remarkable. You make look simple what takes me hours to come up with. I guess some of it is in just using the dies more so as to be familiar with them. Though from the time it takes me I would say there’s some savvy involved that I am missing! Yours are amazing and they do blow me away! So fun! I agree that this embossing folder makes for a gorgeous wedding card and also a very appropriate Sympathy card. I can see me putting these together soon! Thank you for sharing your talent.ReplyCancel

Love the white on white and different textures. Your designs always have balance but with a touch of the unexpected. Thanks for doing the thinking for me and providing clear, complete instructions. One of your many fans. Every accolade you receive is well deserved.

    Good morning Becca,
    What a beautiful card you have made with the embossing folder. Who else sees an angel just missing her head? Perhaps its just my imagination running riot again, sorry. It takes these fanciful moments especially upon first sight. Anyway this is one 3D folder that i cannot wait until it has come to the UK.
    Stunning is the only word for your work of art today, thank you Becca,
    Love and crafty hugs
