Working on my Winter Card Stash the Merry Monday way...............

First I saw the sketch at Tuesday morning Sketches and I loved it, of course as I said I was going to work on Christmas/Winter cards all year I spotted the Merry Monday challenge of White on White, well since I've made a few with that colour challenge I wanted to try one again. I bought the Gently Falling embossing folder from Stampin'up before Christmas but hadn't used it and knew it was perfect for the sketch. So here is my card and I will explain how it was done.

I love this snowglobe die from Impression Obsession, I think I have had it for two years and just started to use it. The trees and deer are also from impression obsession and they fit perfect on the circle. I used three different whites on this card. The snowflakes (IO) deer, trees and base are shimmer paper, The snow globe circle is some swirled shimmer paper years old and this might be the last piece. The card base and softly falling embossed layer are plain white from Michaels.

Using a tip about putting recipe cards for the inside (thanks Tracy) I cut the card with the Top Note so I can write a personal message on it. The little snowman was a leftover die cut that was just sitting on the table.

Challenges I would like to enter:
