Christmas Kickstart Challenge #38 - White on White.

How are we mid-way through September? Time flies when you're having fun making Christmas cards!

Welcome to another Christmas Kickstart Challenge. We have a fun new theme and a lovely elf to meet and greet. Say 'hi' to Linda from Scrappin', Stampin' & Singin'. We've got to know each other through our love of Christmas cards, Hero Arts and The Card Chain Challenge, and I'm delighted that this lovely lady has become a regular player here at Kickstart!

"Hey everyone – I’m Linda W. (aka ScrappinBari) who blogs at Scrappin’, Stampin’ & Singin’. I started out scrapbooking but found my way into serious card making in about 2007 after taking some classes at a local craft store. Now my friends think my home looks like a craft store, given the volume of my stash!! I’ve lived in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA for nearly 24 years. Hero Arts continues to be my favorite stamp company and I was honored to be a Hero Hostess in 2011. I love making Christmas cards all year round and thank Jo for hosting this challenge plus inviting me to be an elf!!"

So, our challenge for the night fortnight is:

Challenge #38 - White on White!

We'd love to see your white cards, please! Linda and I had a little discussion about this and decided that we're up for totally white cards, cards with a neutral addition, a 'pop' of colour and/or a little silver or gold.

If you take a look at Linda's gorgeous creation you can see what we mean...

There are further photographs and all the details about this lovely card over on Linda's blog, so please go take a look and leave her some love!

Here's what I made:

It's hard to see but all of the stencilled snow is very, very sparkly! You can find all the details here.

As always, Rudolph has done us proud with a lovely Random Raffle Prize of this gorgeous die from MFT!

Linda and I very much hope you'll come and play along in this fun challenge!

Wonderful inspiration! There's always something magical about WoW Christmas cards. I have been meaning to play along for the past couple of months but always get sidetracked. Hopefully, I will be joining in this fortnight. After all, Christmas is approaching faster than we think.

Love both your cards--gorgeous work, Linda & Jo! Hoping my light gray panel isn't too much of a neutral color to meet the requirements. Beautiful sentiment die, which I'm lucky to have previously won!
