White on white..

Morning folks..

Sorry I took slightly longer to get a card uploaded than I said.. but things have been a bit hectic this week.

Tuesday I had a card workshop to prep for, and that took most of the day to do the sorting, cutting, and packing. Yesterday I thought I ought to do some cleaning and get some bits of shopping done, then rest my footsie as it was getting rather painful, and then last night, I took it easy and made this card.

I wanted to enter it into the Less is More Challenge blog, where the theme this week is White on White.


It started out mainly as a trial for the Docrafts website, where some of the folks on there were saying that the relatively new XCUT frame dies don't work on the Big Shot.. well... actually they do.... as you can see. I've layered up the main panel onto another piece of white, then layered it onto the card. All the panels are raised slightly to give the card more dimension. Here's a couple of closer views.


On this view above, you can see the lettering and the main part of the panel. The panel will cut and emboss at the same time, and also include some pricking holes if you wanted to add some stitching details. My idea of raising it slightly came around because the heart is cut out, but I wanted to sit my flowers inside this section.


And here are my flowers.

I have used a range of the XCUT flower and leaf dies to create some dimension onto the card. But because you cut each section in a strip, you can join them together to create different flowers. The lettering is from the new-ish XCUT alphabet dies that I bought ages ago and never used.

If you like the look of the quilled flowers, then you can see these two  cards that I made for the Docrafts website.

That's it for today - I'll be back with another post for you tomorrow. xx
