Wishing You a Merry Christmas

There's something elegant about white or ivory colored cards. And in my opinion, they are some of the most difficult cards to make. 

I have made white ones in the past, but I'm not sure I've ever done an ivory colored one before. 

I didn't think the depth of the 3-D embossing showed up as well as I wanted it to so I ended up lightly blending some soft colored ink onto the piece. Hindsight? I'm not sure that was the best decision, but that's what I did.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Great card Jeanette. I think the light color is great. That is one thing that caught my eye and highlighted the great embossing folder. Awesome job.

What a sweet card Jeanette - the colouring lifts the embossing beautifully
