Happy Friday to all my crafty friends!!!! And, yes! I made it through another birthday yesterday with hubby spoiling me completely. Plus the doctor promoted me from a boot to a brace on my ankle for the next four weeks. 

I realized today that I needed one more Christmas card, and after seeing the inspiration over at the CASE study challenge, I decided to join in with this card…


….and here is the inspiration card

I just fell in love with this inspiration card! It is just so gorgeous with all of the textures highlighting the white on white design. 


I used velvet paper for the largest die cut to give a different texture to the card. The base is embossed and the small die cut is stamped with Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Garden Veranda Set .


The ribbon is a pretty white-on-white polka dot and I added white lace under the bottom ribbon.


The cute little flowers are made using a circle punch. I cut them from the same paper as the card base and placed a small dot of velvet paper in the center, topped by a white pearl.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my card today and will leave comments before you leave! Thanks for stopping by….
