White on White Holiday Card swap Challenge, Due 10/15/2012

Who doesnít love white on white cards. They are just so elegant.

So the theme of this card swap is to create white on white Holiday cards-Christmas, Hanukkah or New Years is appropriate.

The possibilities are endless, but here are a few ideas:

1) You can dry emboss, or wet emboss an image
2) You can use your cuttlebug or any embossing tool for background or main image
3) Add a little glitter, bling, flowers, you know how to make it pop,

Show off your creativity in this one.

You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you. You must also check in after swap and let us know you received your swap back. Description requirement:

Count me in Vivian. I havent missed one of your swaps in a long time. A quick question on this one. Should everything on the card be white, (i.e. embellishments) or is a splash of color acceptable. Just wondering. Thanks.

I've never done a white on white before. Is it ok to use a different colour ink (black, etc.)?
