ABC Christmas Challenge - W & X are for?

It's the first Wednesday of the month, so we have a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...Carissa is the host, and the themes are:

'W is for White'
'X marks the spot'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Wild Rose Studio:

Prize - Winter Cottages A5 Stamp Set

There's also a cute little stamp set from Carissa for another lucky winner too!

I kept my 'W is for White' card very simple...using an embossing folder and a couple dies from Sizzix to create a 'snowy' card. I distressed the edges of the embossed panel a little, and added an adhesive pearl to the centre of the layered up snowflakes.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

On my 'X marks the spot' card, I picked some checked paper (from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper)...with lots of 'X's' on...cut it into quarters so that I could make another 'X'...although that one's hidden by my hedgehog image (from the 'Jolly Friends' set by Penny Black)! I distressed the edges a little, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.

Two great cards and a clever idea for the 'X' one in particular.

What a great pair of cards Helen. I love the elegant embossing of the snowflakes on the first one, and the second one is so cute.
