Peace on Earth

White on white cards are beautiful in person, but they are impossible for me to scan. Trust me when I say that IRL this card looks "way better".
I had my card ready to post yesterday for Bloggers Challenge which had the theme countdown to Christmas, but I didn't make it. My daughter had to work and I had the grandkids who were both under the weather. I never got a chance to get on the computer. Oh well, know my heart was there.
To make my card, I used Cryogen cardstock for the base. I love the sparkle in the paper. Over that I adhered a layer of vellum which had snowflakes lightly embossed on it. The ornaments were die cut using a Spellbinders die. The top one was stamped (Heartfelt Creations) and embossed with white embossing powder. [You'll have to trust me on this one.] The bottom ornament is stamped (Third Coast) using pumice stone  distress ink and is popped up. To finish the card I used a border of lace trim.
Yes, it's time to hang the ornaments. So I'm also entering my card into the Third Coast Challenge which is countdown to Christmas.
