Crafter's Companion Inspirers Design Team July Project - White On White

Hi everyone

I'm here today share my latest Crafter's Companion project with you. I thought I would go CAS (Clean And Simple) and create a 'white on white' card for you. As the card is white with that lovely hint of silver from the Centura Pearl card stock, it could be used for a wedding, engagement or an anniversary as well as for a birthday. 

My ingredient list is quite simple too, I only used 2 flower dies, Centura Pearl card and silver mirra card and a few gems.  The same design could be used with any small dies and using any colours - so why not give it a go and share your make on our Facebook page!

How I created the card and a list of products used are shown below the photos.

UPDATE: This card has topped 295 'likes' in one of my Facebook Cardmaking Groups, and had about 90 requests for my blog address.....wowsa!



Here's What I Did
First I created a 6" x 6" top fold card base from Centura Pearl card and on one side I die cut a square into the centre. Next I die cut a large square from more white Centura Pearl card and then using the smaller die again I cut into it to create a frame, this step was repeated again to create a 2nd frame. 

Using 2 flower dies I cut a large selection in different size, plus a few butterflies.  The flower were then glued to each other at the tip of each petal and to the edges of the frame. I started at one of the corners and work outwards and then started in other areas to allow the flowers to connect to each other. Some of the petals were glued on top of each other, others were glued under the petals to add interest. When finished I used one of the frames (white side showing) and glued it in place on the inside to hide my workings, and using foam tape on the other frame I add this to the front. To reflect the front, I cut down a piece of silver mirra card and attached it to the inside back of the card.

To break up the arrangement I glued 3 small butterflies in with the flowers (these can see in the close up photo), and after the flower frame was finished I glued 3 more butterflies over the top of them - these were cut from white glitter card. To finish off I added 2 different size gems to the centre of each flower.

Here's What I Used
Paper/Cardstock (CS): White Centura Pearl With Hint Of Silver CS
Dies: 'Floral Duo' English Country Garden - Sara Signature Collection, Diamond Press 'Butterflies'

Other: Silver Mirra CS, White Glitter CS, Gems, Square Nesting Dies, foam pads

Blogger has been playing up and created a duplicate post of this one, which I've now deleted....sorry!

I was left a lovely message from a sweet lady called Margaret Lovejoy on 30th July 2016 - so I've copied the message here so it's not lost when I've delete the duplicate post.

She said "Thank you for your blog address, I love your card and really appreciate you sharing it along with the instructions. Cheers"
