In Love With All White

Hi there everyone!  Now it's all white day!  I just adore doing cards all in white, they are so much fun and this one was no exception!  I started with an embossibility folder to give texture to the background.  Next I cut four Moroccan borders and glued them into place so they formed a square, cutting each one down in size a bit and overlapping them in the corners.  I added some Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA glue dots all the way around the frame that was made with the borders.  I stamped my tiny sentiment with a clear perfect medium pad and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I cut it out with one of the Moroccan accent pieces.  I cut two of the Moroccan corners and added them to the top and bottom using the "holding hand" part of the die to link them together.  I mounted this entire piece of 3D foam for the centre focal element.  I tied a double bow using the new white silky crush ribbon and fanned the loops out.  I added a little embellishment from my craft stash and two white decorative pins as accents.  I matted the entire piece using some white glitter card for an extra bit of bling  and then pierced around the edges to frame the entire piece.  I really simple card that works well for a wedding, anniversary, christening or just to say "love you."  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
wonderful card today. I just love all white cards. But I am biased on ladies cards, I do get more of a thrill making ladies cards, than male ones.

Hope this will help about piercing around page. I use and I am sure Sure uses the Tim Holtz ruler as it has piercing holes all along one edge. The ruler is see through plastic so you can see where you are going.. Just use a large pin to pierce or a pokey tool. Hope this helps you
Best wishes

Hi Sue,
All I can think about looking at this beautiful card of yours today is rich cream frosting... ooohhh yum yum!! I can just see the knife gliding through the soft, sweet, rich cream on the top of a fabulous melt-in-the-mouth cake. Now, am I having cream frosting yearnings or can anyone you or anyone else see where I am coming from? Please say yes or I'll know that I am losing it all together...lol!!
A stunning card Sue, and if I could eat it I would!! By the way, that ribbon and bow are GORGEOUS.
Hope you are well and mum too.
