The White Card ...

Hi Everybody,

Happy New Year ...   to you all and I hope it is a very happy one for everybody.

 I am hoping that this year will match if not better the last one as 2013 was wonderful for me.

 Yesterday I added a video to  explain  why I  make my cards the way I do  and it was very well received.

But in the video there was a  white card that I had made and that has sparked quite a lot of interest.

I have had comments, emails and  requests  to  show how it was   made.

Well the good news is that I made that video almost two years ago.

So what do you need to make it ???

Well first of all you need an Easter Egg in an Acetate dome and then you will have to eat the contents .... nothing difficult there then !!

Save the Acetate casing and then follow the steps in the tutorial as you eat the chocolate .... easy peasy

Here are two versions of the card because the egg was encased in both of these domes ... so creating two cards and I have added Spellbinders Blossoms to the mix.

I have used the Classic Ovals both plain and Scalloped but you can use any oval in your collection  that will fit around the particular egg dome that you have or buy.

And these acetate domes can be bought in many sizes and shapes  from most good craft shops.

I hope you enjoy both the video and your chocolate as you make the card for your self and feel really good about your recycling efforts in the process.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Happy New Year Christina,
    Love this beautiful card also like "where to get the dome" and "what to do while using it"
    I have a few of these somewhere must go find and use them.
    Thank you for your stunning cards, tutorials and inspiration.
    Have a great day and a fantastic 2014

  2. Morning Christina,
    Happy New Year to you and yours.
    Lovely card, I did notice on the video and thought it's so pretty. Will watch the video later.
    Have a good day.

  3. Happy New Year Christina!!!
    What a great idea for a card, roll on Easter :-) x

  4. So pretty! I remember watching this video before and I enjoyed seeing it again, as I'd forgotten about it. I need to find some of these little domes in the store. Thank you. BethAnn M

  5. I love the instuctions on how to make this domed card but think I might need to try the step after buying the easter egg two or three times to make sure I get it right!!! LOL
    I have some domes lying around somewhere that I've never got round to using so thank you for your video Christina
    All the best in 2014

  6. Good afternoon Christina,
    What a beautiful card and so glad you showed it today, as i did admire it yesterday when i watched the video. I like how your flowers that you make turn out so life like and with the leaves added to finish it off. I hope you and your camera crew had a lovely time last night bringing in the New Year and i too hope this year is a better one for me.
    Take care
    Love and crafty hugs

  8. I have got to try this card idea. I don't have a lot of spellbinders, unfortunately, but I do have a Cricut. Also, I love to emboss my cards! TFS and Happy New Year.
