Craftmad December Card Swap - White on White with Bling

 

I enjoyed making both of these cards for my partner for our December card swap at Craftmad (gallery here).  I used some silver glitter paper for the top of the card.  The bottom section I created by cutting four Spellbinder edges and layering them up.  I covered the join with some white ribbon.  Then attached this lovely white paper flower from my stash, cut some Spellbinder die leaves.  The bottom leaves I embossed the veins in the centre of the leaves.  When I cut these leaves out I always put a sheet of baking paper down before the card stock to make it easier to get the piece out.  I have added that baking paper cut out as a second layer to the top leaf….I  just liked the effect.  Hard to see in the photo.


This is my second card.  I found this embossed panel in my stash which must have been sent to me in a previous Craftmad swap.  I then attached the lace and the lovely flower I received from Kaye and added the bling brad.

You can come and join in the fun.  Craftmad is a free forum and we are just setting up our first swap for 2014.

Thanks for visiting.
