Polkadoodle Challenge 37 - Whiteout

It's time for another Polkadoodle challenge and the theme this week is:


So only the minimal of colour will be accepted - so its opportunity to be Christmassy!

Although my card looks a little too blue (the light was not very good!) is is practically all white. I've used a paper from Magical Winter Vol 2 plus the snowman image and embossed and inked some offcut card.
I've added a fine dotted line with a blue gel pen all around the edges and added some ribbon from my stash along with some blingy gems! The snowman has been 'coloured' with glitter glue and glossy accents.

Good luck with the challenge and the closing date is Sunday 25 September at 12noon GMT

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch followed
Digital Tuesday: Celebrate the Season (Winter)
House of Gilli: Embossing

  • Image and printed paper: Magical Winter Vol 2
  • Dies: Nestabilities and Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
  • Everything else: My stash


  1. Super card Ruth - he's one gorgeous snowman! Cheers Claire x

  2. Absolutely stunning! Love the crispness of the white and just a touch of blue! Cute snowman. Thanks for joining us at SSW.


  3. Hi Ruth, cute image and I love the white on white hint of blue and your added embossing. I love embossing on a card, either dry or wet and it gives that added texture and old people just love it especially when their sight is failing them. Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

  8. I just love all white cards, especially with textures that give definition like your card this week. This is lovely with just the touch of pale blue and I love those fine little tiny faux stiches on the edges of the panels - it's a perfect finishing touch. Thanks for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
