Last of the White on White Swap Cards
I FINALLY found some time for cardmaking...and thought I'd utilize the time to make the #10 card for Ruth's All White Swap...
I recently ordered/received the Sizzix Bigz XL Baby carriage die and wanted to use it....and so this Baby Carriage Card is the first things I've created with this die...
(I am already having visions dancing in my head for the next time I use this die...and am thinking of using some pretty prints to piece together the carriage..
It's always fun mixing embossed patterns on one card...and so I used the CB Textile Textures and Swiss Dots embossing folders (my 2 all time fav folders I think) .
I also used this card as an opportunity to make and use some little flower buds that I enjoy making with a quilling tool and punched out circles of card stock....they're easy to make...and the possibilities are endless with regard to colors and patterns etc..
in this case tho...I was doing an all white card...so the flowers are white as well..and have a dab of Crystal Stickles in the center (hard to see in this pic..I know)
If you're looking at the carriage hood and wondering which embossing folder that is(?)...
well..it's one of the new embossing folders from Quickutz...I recently ordered 10 of them..and have to say..they're ALL very oo-la-la-ish!
And finally..I wanted to gussy up the carriage a little bit...beyond embossing..yet didn't think that *bling was the way to go...so I added tiny drops of ranger Liquid Pearls...in Opal... to the embossed pattern on the carriage hood.
This being my last All White Swap Card..I am now looking forward to working with color again...and some of the gorgeous DSP that I have ..that has been neglected lately!
But I can't let this post end without saying that the All White Swap was so much fun...and has left me knowing that all white cards will always be part of my repertoire... something that I enjoy creating...
Thank's Ruth for a fun swap that really nurtured creativity!
