This month the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop is all about white-on-white projects. I love tone-on-tone projects, and white-on-white is my favorite. I also enjoy using different products together, and I used several to create today’s card.

 

Here’s what I made:

My card has three stockings hanging from a mantle covered in pine boughs and pinecones. The sentiment is subtle: each stocking has the word Merry.

While the details are visible in person, it’s hard to make them show up in a photo. Here’s a darkened photo to help.

Here’s how I did it:

The card base is Thick Whisper White card stock. Everything else is the regular Whisper White card stock (CS.)

I used the Christmas Stocking Thinlits to cut the three stockings: back, front, and topper. For the toppers, I first heat embossed the word Merry in white onto CS, then cut them with the die. I glued the pieces together.

The word Merry is from this  stamp in the Hang Your Stocking stamp set:

Here’s a close up of the heat embossed words:

I cut a 1/4″ x 5″ strip of CS for the mantle top, and a 1/2″ x 4-3/4″ strip of CS for the mantle base. I used Paper Snips to cut an angle at each end of the base. I glued the two pieces together.

I used the Pretty Pines Thinlits to cut the pine boughs and the pinecone backs and fronts.

I ran a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of CS through the Big Shot with the Brick Wall embossing folder, and glued it to the card base.

I attached the mantle to the brick wall with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I attached the stockings to the brick wall with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and to the mantle with glue.

I attached the pine boughs with glue, then attached the pinecones with Fast Fuse.
