Crazy for White on White!
Yesterday I posted the first card that I made for Ruth's White on White swap...
and as promised, I'm posting the second card today!
I am totally enamoured with my Cuttlebug....as you all know...(how did I ever manage without it?)....I find myself always adding texture to my cards with embossing folders.....texture plates etc...and now..when I DO make a card that is "sans embossing"..it looks drab to me...like something is missing...
Well..what better way to make use of a CB than on a white on white card...(?)
..because with a few turns of the handle....you've got beautiful embossed dimension and texture that is key to adding depth and detail to any "color on color" card...
Ruth's White on White swap has turned out to be my big card making thrill of the week!.... (thanks Ruth!)...and yes..in case you are wondering...i DID got back to her thread on splitcoaststampers...and sign on for a THIRD SPOT!!..and I dragged my scs pal , Sue, with me as well...(love ya Sue...mmmmwuah!)
So this is my 2nd white on white card...I'm happy with it..love the bird..LOVE the envelope..and LOVE the envelope even more when its embossed...(gee what a surprise!)
Today I'll work on the 3rd card.....because maybe...just maybe... a 4th spot in Ruth's swap might be calling my name...! (Sue are you wiht me??lol)
