All white card challenge
Hello crafty friends! I am back today with another challenge that my friend Kim from Kim.Kreates and I decided to do. This time, we decided to do an all-white card (well, almost all white LOL!). We decided we would use one small splash of an accent color, too. I was nervous about this one, but I really love how this card turned out!
I started with an A2 card base. Next, I cut a piece of 65 lb. white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base and embossed it using my Spellbinders platinum machine with a 3D embossing folder (the Basic Plaid folder) from Altenew that I had purchased a while ago and somehow it got lost in my stash. Does this happen to anyone else??? LOL! Next, I took a butterfly confetti die that my daughter had gotten me for Christmas last year. I taped the die down to a piece of layering cardstock (65 lb. white cardstock from Michaels) and sprayed it with silver glitter dust spray. I let it dry for a few minutes and then ran it through my Spellbinders machine to cut all of the little butterflies.
I arranged them in a pattern so it would look like they are flying off of the card. I adhered some of the wings with bit with foam adhesive tape and glued some right down flat on the card.
I stamped the sentiment with Memento black ink. It is a sentiment from the Altenew Paint a Flower-Carnation set. I was thinking this would make a nice wedding card or graduation card. I then took a piece of black 100 lb. cardstock from Michaels and cut a piece slightly larger than the sentiment and adhered them together, and then adhered the whole piece to the card.
For a finishing touch, I added some clear Nuvo drops in various spots on the card. Inside, I added a few more of the extra butterflies that I did not use on the front. Now I also have some left to use for another card!
