Tag: White on White Card Challenge
Hello and Happy Monday to you! Today there is a new card challenge over on Cards in Envy. It’s a hard challenge but an easy challenge too. How can that be? The theme is White on White. It’s hard to wrap your brain around using just white on a card and to think of a design. But once you do, it’s so quick and easy to put together and so very clean looking. Of course, it is hard to stamp an image in white and a sentiment so it is okay to use black or other color ink for the sentiment and black for a stamped image but don’t color it in. I went with a die image so everything would stay white except for the sentiment “hello.”
Here’s what I used on my card:
- White Cardstock
- Scallop Square Sizzix Die
- Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Notes Aster Die #1219
- Stampendous “Hello” Acrylic Stamp from Happy Messages
- Memento Ink – Pistachio
- Sheer White Ribbon
There are some wonderful White on White cards by the Designers on the Cards in Envy blog today. I do hope you’ll check them out and then consider making your own White on White card to share for the challenge. if you are having a mental block on a design, think about making a wedding card or a snowy winter/Christmas card. Perhaps that will help you out.
I don’t think I’ve ever made a totally white on white card until now. And I love it! So elegant and really easy. This week we are starting a new card challenge over on Cards in Envy and the challenge is to make a white on white card. It can be any theme but it has to be mostly white. If you must use another color, only use a tiny bit. I guess my other color is “sliver” which I think really helped to keep the overall look “white.”
For this card, I only used white card stock, a nice heavy weight from Paper Trey Ink. There are actually 4 layers of the white card stock on this card. The first is the base cut to the 4.25″ x 5.25″ size. Then I punched out a rectangle using the Simon Says Stitched Rectangles Die. I then cut out a smaller size layer and ran it through the Big Shot with a Sizzix Embossing Folder. The next layer was another but smaller rectangle punched out with the same Simon Says Stitched Rectangles Die set. Before I attached all the layers down, I wrapped a piece of white Hug Snug ribbon around them and tied a flat bow. I added a bit of white tulle around the bow. The flowers were punched from a die by Heartfelt Creations called Birds & Blooms. I did two layers of just the flowers and used a stylus on a foam pad to give them some shape. The silver rhinestones in the center of each flower are from Want 2 Scrap. The sentiment is from Paper Trey Inks Mixed Messages collection and I stamped it with Prima’s Tin Can Silver/Grey Ink. I also punched out the sentiment with a label die and mounted it to card with a foam square to make it stand out a bit.
Working with white on white is really a lovely change and I hope you will try to join us for this challenge.
