Lawn Fawn: White Christmas in July Card

Lawn Fawn White Christmas in July Card by Maria Byrd |

I wanted to create a "white on white" card for a challenge.  So, I spent two days trying to figure out how to do it and almost gave up.  Finally this morning, as I was having breakfast while staring at pieces of failed attempts.. an idea popped in my head for a White Christmas card (and yes, it was a July morning).

Stars from Lawn Fawn Starry Skies were die cut from a vellum and backed with a super sparkly cardstock.  I glued three cut-out stars on some spots.  The white embossed trees (Fiskars Holiday Frolic) on vellum were from my first few failed attempts. The middle tree is heat-embossed with sparkle powder and adhered with foam tape.

The critters were from Lawn Fawn Upon A Star and heat embossed in white on vellum, fussy cut, filled with Wink of Stella, and raised with thicker foam tape.  For the ground, a vellum is die cut with oval stitched border.  "Merry Christmas" sentiment is heat embossed in silver.
