Loving White on White


I've been away again on another trip so I have gotten behind again. Plus, I have not been in the card making mood for a while but I'm working on it.

I love white on white cards. I worked on this one for two days because I started out trying to make a case of a beautiful card I saw on Pinterest but I didn't have the correct die for it. I think I need to order it, though. So, for this card I did my own design.

My card was made for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers: CT0315, Fan Club March Gallery. The theme is The Keys of Happiness. Some of the things that make me happy and used for this card are: hobbies and crafts, flowers, white on white cards, and birthdays. Also, my card was for challenge TLC516, White Out.

My card also fits the challenge at djkardkreations: NBUS #4 to use something old or new that has never been used. I am using a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die set (Botanical Swirls and  Accents) that has never been used and I am thinking I have had it for a year or two.



Recipe:
Stamps-Sweet 'n Sassy/Poppies Greetings
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Spellbinders Shapeabilities-Botanical Swirls and Accents set die cuts, pearls, unknown flower, Cuttlebug/Anna Griffin-Poppy embossing folder

It's lovely, BenBen! I'm glad you used what was on hand, because your design looks fabulous, and reminds us that we can make beautiful things with our own stash after being inspired by someone else's beautiful ideas, even tho they used other products!

Very elegant! hugs, de

Such a pretty, elegant, card! I really like the look of white on white cards. I always have a problem making them...but you obviously didn't! So very nicely done!

This beautiful card made me happy too. It's so very elegant & rich looking and I'm loving all those luscious dies. How clever of you to be able to work it into so many challenges too! I'm behind again, getting ready (or trying to!) to go away, with our BFF who arrived today. Wasn't planned, but family & friends are priority, so will try to get done what I can, the rest will have to wait! Hugs & TFS
