Clean and simple is not easy. It’s difficult to create a card where you have just enough and not too much. My card is mostly white except for the butterfly and sentiment. Dimension is created with layers and texture. It came together very quickly once I decided to use the Floral Fest stamp set. I stamped the flower image two times with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The outer layer is punched with the Large Scallop punch and the next flower layer is hand cut with paper snips. LOVE the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. It adds so much without being too glitzy. Click the image to enlarge and see the Iridescent Ice sparkle. Here’s a sneak peak of one of the new In Colors Island Indigo. The butterfly and sentiment are stamped in this new In Color. The punch used for the sentiment is the Decorative Label punch. Click here to see how to punch.
I created this card for The Paper Players’ challenge.
