Cream Card

Hi Everybody,

With this card I thought I would stay away from the pink .... just for a change  .... and not for long either I might add !!!

We all like to see the white on white cards that are so popular and this one is created using just cream on cream with a hint of gold.

The very base card has been embossed with the Dainty Dots A4 folder from Spellbinders and the corners rounded.  It also has the A Frame back for the card to be displayed.

This has then been layered with Gold Mirror card.

Then from the third layer I have used the largest  5 x 7 Matting Basics B and cut it in cream

Now I hear many people saying that to buy dies that just create a plain square or rectangles is a waste of money .... but not so.

Using the Spellbinder gives  the distinctive embossed edge around  the  card to give them that classy look that I really like.

So layered onto these base layers I have used all three of the dies in the 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops and the sentiment has been stamped and then embossed in gold to the smallest panel.

The sentiment is from the Good Friends Labels 29 from JustRite  and I bought both of these from the craft show.

Around the edge I have added in some La Creme pearls from Want2Scrap as a finishing touch.

The only other adornment is a little ribbon from The Ribbon Room    and a button from my jar and that is the card completed.

Simple, quick and easy and would suit any occasion.
