Just a Note

One of my favorite styles of cards to design uses predominately white card bases with a splash of color and dimensional layers.

Just a Note

Elegance in just a few steps and easy to create multiples for gift sets.

  • Score a 3 1/8 x 4 1/2-inch piece of white cardstock with 3 horizontal lines, stamp with a sentiment and attach to the front of a white Les Petites card base with dimensional foam.
  • Highlight a small piece of white cardstock with Wheat VersaMagic and stamp Fleur De Lys in Cornucopia VersaMagic.  Edge the sides with Delicata Golden Glitz ink.
  • Die cut the Iris from white cardstock and color with pencils and chalk.  Attach to the stamped rectangle with a small piece of dimensional foam under the top of the flower and wrap the bottom portion of the stem to the back.
  • Attach the artwork to the front of the prepared card using dimensional foam.

May you day bloom with happiness.
