Joy


Hi everyone.  Another Christmas card ... I'm on a roll! :)

Today is another CAS card with lots of white.  I embossed the main panel and then glued on die-cuts and a few strips of turquoise glitter paper.  I popped up the main panel with dimensionals for some depth.  Easy and quick card!  Hope you like.



Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Turquoise Glitter paper ($1 store)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Snowflakes embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Bubble Alphabet die (C.C. Designs), Snowflake die (Sizzix), glue, and dimensionals



You may have noticed that I use C.C. Designs white cardstock quite often (available at All That Scraps).  It comes in a couple of different weights (both quite thick and very sturdy) ... and it really is wonderful for coloring with copics (something that I'm just learning).  I have used Neenah white cardstock as well.  Both are great for copics.

Whisper White from SU! is my go-to white cardstock for using the SU! inks.  It really works well with the markers and the smooth surface is great for sponging.  I usually use the glossy paper from SU! when brayering, but Whisper White also works well for that too.  Just my take on some of the different types of white cardstock available.

One other quick note.  My Copper Leaves card was picked as the Headliner for last week's "Give Thanks" challenge at Paper Players.  Thanks Ann,  I'm truly honored!
