I love the simplicity of look that a white on white card gives even if there are lots of layers or just one or two. I used another sugar nellie stamp coloured with promarkers though it didn't really take much colouring. I added sparkle with sakura gel pen and stickles.
I used some holly garland gift tie, the start of the last pack of 3 I bought from Asda several years ago, sad that they haven't had them since. It has a wire base so I used both pva glue and double sided tape to stick it to the card. I think it finishes the card perfectly and ties in well with the garland the snow peeps are holding.
I didn't add a sentiment as I thought it would make a nice card for my newly married niece and nephew (you might remeber I made the wiccan card) apparently I got bad information as they are pagan not wiccan and my niece described the difference as being the difference between Cof E and catholic, but they thanked me for the effort and kind thoughts. I decided that as pagans they are more likely to celebrate the winter solstice although I'm sure they will expect Santa to visit too.
