How's This for White!

Boy, did this card NOT turn out how I expected it! I actually started out this card with a small white rectangle mounted on a Garden Green scalloped rectangle. Do you see that anywhere? Nope!! It didn’t even make the card. (I did end up making a card with that part later. Maybe I’ll add it at the end of this post.)

It doesn’t get much more simple than this. It seems silly explaining how I made it, but I need something to fill up this space anyway. LOL! The bottom is embossed with a Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. The lines are scored with a Scor-Pal – on both sides of the ribbon. The “Thinking of You” stamp is (again) from Stampin’ Up!’s All Year Cheer I – stamped with Lavender Lace. The butterfly is stamped on vellum, embossed with Ultra-fine White embossing powder and cut out. There are three little sparkly flowers for a little "bling." That’s it!

Oh, here is the card that ended up with the green scalloped rectangle.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Both of these cards are just beautiful! I love the simplicity of doing the edges with a scorer on the top and bottom of your ribbon. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hello Lynette! I absolutely ADORE these two cards -- they are just gorgeous. Just goes to show you that clean and simple can be as show-stopping as more embellished cards. Beautiful work!
