Cuttlebug Challenge #13

Hi! So excited to do this Cuttlebug Challenge #13

The challenge was to make an 'all white' card. I came up with this card as I wanted to use up some of my small white cardstock pieces. The collage look was ideal. This was the first time that I have used Dimensional Magic - I coated the surface of the retro flower to make it stand out. I inked the edges of each white panel to give the
card a vintage feel.

Forgive my images - the camera didn't like the 'white' look - the flash came out too strong so I had to go without the flash.

Materials used:
Misc. white cardstock
Cuttlebug embossing folders - Divine Swirls, Swiss Dots, Textile Texture
Retro Flower Punch
Small Flower Punch
Versa Colour - Copper for edges
Kaisercraft Pearls
Dimensional Magic for Retro Flower surface

  6. Hi Alison

    Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog. You asked about Cardmakers Anonymous - to be truthful Alison it's not really a blog in the true sense of the word it's just a meeting place for a gang of us that used to be on MSN. It kinda keeps us all in touch.
    You'd find it very boring!!!

  9. I do like your use of the embossing on this one. And the focal point in the center is quite nice.

  10. Great card! Thanks for playing with us this week.

  11. This is so great! You are very talented!

  12. Very lovely! I think the collage treatment was especially nice with this all white design. I loved the cross that it made, and the extra treatment that you gave it. The circular piece in the center is stunning.
