White on white - with a hint of green :)

Good Afternoon Everyone

So, I thought I'd have a lazy Sunday... see, the problem is, I'm not very good at doing nothing so I thought I'd pop a photo on of a card I made for our last Craftathon...

This is an 8x8 card, made all white, with the exception of tints of green.

Here's what I used:
2 x 8x8 white card blanks
1 A4 sheet of Silver mirri card
1 A4 sheet of 160gsm paper
1m of green silky crush ribbon
1 Pearl embellishment
My own Sentimentally Yours  Quotes of Inspiration A5 Stamps
Iced Spruce Distress Ink
Spellbinder Grand Decorative Ovals Dies
A4 Damask Embossing Folder
Aqua Stickles
Glamour Dust
Woodware Sakura Flower Punches (Super, Big and Multi)

It's easy to create this card... just takes a bit of time!

The frame on top of the card is cut from a 19cm square of one of the card blanks, then the centre is cut out, leaving a 2cm border.

The embossed inside of the frame is made from a second piece of the spare card blank, again cut to 19cm square, then embossed using the embossing folder and Grand Calibur.
The frame is then foam mounted onto the embossed section, creating a 3d raised frame :-)
The stickles is on the inside part of the frame, on the edge... much easier to do this than you think, just run the nib of the stickles along the edge and apply small amounts of stickles.

The flowers are punched from the sakura flower punches and the 160gsm paper, I've found the paper is easier when shaping the flowers, as I've done :-) Some flowers were left white and some were given the distress inky edge!

The die cut oval is done using the inside section that was spare from cutting the frame out .. all the little dots on it are glittered, but you can't see it too well on this photo.

Anyway, you should be able to make the rest out,... hope you like it :)

Try this card in other colour ways,.. I love white on white, with just a hint of colour from a distress ink pad :-)

Happy Crafting!!
