All White?. . . . . . .


Good morning Duckadee's. Don't worry, the title has nothing to do with Michael Barrymore, it does refer to the card hahaha!!!
Hope that you are all well with the Sun on your face and the wind at your back.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my vellum card. I've worked out several ways of nipping into that SB Tapestry die and of course, it cuts a super aperture. In these austere times, crafty purchases, especially dies, have to earn their keep in The Pond.

Now, today's card is a first for me. I was a white on white virgin (no smutty remarks thank you !!!) and had always admired cards folk had done like this. As you know, I have a penchant for bright colours so I had shied away from it.
I started with a 6x6 white card base which I embossed with a butterfly wreath mask (freebie with a mag). I then cut four of the SB Fantastic Flourish Three and an SB Medallion Three from white card (my white card is 300gsm from Limetree Crafts).
I arranged the flourishes next to each other to form a circular pattern and stuck them together along the edges. I then foam padded this to the base card.
The medallion was then foam padded onto this. I didn't want to add a sentiment as it looked to "clean" so I popped a bling in the centre instead.

I didn't think it was too bad for a first attempt.

Have a great day, whatever you are up to (day off for me, hurrah!!!).

    No! I LOVE it right up my street ..........Ooooops!!! glad Hazel has commented before me as I feel a "purchase" of a new Die coming on. She would be telling me I have more than enough and don't need it.
    Have a Great Day

  9. hi Ang, I love white on white and this is great for a first go - hate to think what you will be like when you really get going!! I've actually been out in the garden doing a spot of tidying and pruning, it is a beautiful sunny day here so had to make the most of it. Now to do some samples for the first workshop of the year, February is coming round too fast!!
