We’re featuring another new stamp set bundle today that we used to make an elegant friend card. Are you ready for it?

We really went against the grain today. We rarely use white card bases. For our personal cards, we like to use a coordinating color for a card base and then put a white or vanilla liner inside for the personal stuff.

But after checking out several options with our intricate die cut later, Ann knew that white on white was the answer.

Isn’t it lovely? You could use this for a wedding or birthday card using everything the same. Just change out the greeting.

And it wasn’t hard. It just took a steady hand laying down the lacy cut out layer and a lot of tests for what color she wanted to use.

Here are a few she tried:

  • Daffodil Delight & Cajun Craze
  • Daffodil Delight & Crushed Curry
  • Highland Heather & Orchid Oasis
  • Flirty Flamingo & Poppy Parade
  • Flirty Flamingo & Sweet Sorbet

But we ended up with Flirty Flamingo and Polished Pink. For the leaves, we thought that Old Olive looked better on Pear Pizzazz than directly on white.

What do you think?

Cardmaking Tip

If you look really closely, Ann made the small tag from the Tailor Made Tags die set even smaller by running the tag through a second time and lining up the stitching. It looks so much better without the extra unused part of the tag on there.

About that greeting. Well, it’s free! Yep! It’s from the Adorable Owls set that you can get free with a $50 order while supplies last.

And using the large butterfly to cover up the tag hole saved her from adding ribbon that she didn’t want to add. We like a more streamlined look on this card because there’s so much movement on it.

Before I share the cardmaking supplies we used to make this elegant friend card, let me invite you to a couple of our coming events.
