Merry Monday #115 and Cardabilities #102

Merry Monday #115 Christmas Challenge is to create a White on White Christmas Card, and the sentiment could be in Silver. Cardabilities Challenge #102 is a sketch challenge.

Here they are:

For my card I cut 3 Ovals with Stampin'Up! Framelits Ovals Collection, I used the outer 3 ovals. I ran the card base through the Big Shot with the Stampin'Up! Textured Impressions Stripe embossing folder. The largest oval was embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder that has circles (I do not know the name of the folder). The next oval up was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called D'vine Swirl. The smallest oval was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Swiss Dot.
I cut out the leaves with a Retired Sizzlits called Tiny Leaves. I them embossed them with a Stampin'Up! folder called Pretty Print. I Cut 2 Ornaments from the Framelits Holiday Ornaments. The larger of the ornaments I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Snowflakes. The smaller ornament I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Snow Dots. I cut the Tag from the Framelits called Hearts A Flutter and Stamped the sentiment, which is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and I used a mix of Stampin'Up! embossing powder named Pewter, that I mixed with an old Winter Wonderland sparkly embossing powder (do not know the maker). I also used the same embossing powder mixture for the Jingle Bell that was stamped from the Jolly Jingle Bits stamp set. I used White Bakers Twine to string together the 2 Ornaments the Tag and the Jingle bell and tied the to the White Organza Ribbon Bow. I used a glue dot to adhere the leaves and then another glue dot to adhere the bow. And to finish off the know a Christmas Card has to have some bling! I used the Basic Jewels from Stampin'Up!
Here is my Card:

I enlarged it to show the details. I just saw that the tail of the ribbon is covering most of the small ornament. This was a good challenge, I have always wanted to try a white on white card, but was shy about how to approach it. For this card I knew I had to show the 3 layers like the sketch, so I figured I had to emboss each layer. Maybe next card, I will try to do the 3 layers in just the Swiss Dot or the same as the one on the bottom oval (the one I do not know the name). I will try this again!
 Blessings to you all! Till next time!

I used 7 different embossing folders! and then I also heat embossed!!! I heat embossed stuff I didn't use on the card so I could choose what I thought best!
