Simon Says White On White

I decided to try my hand at this challenge on the Simon Says Blog. It's not as easy as it sounds and my card so did not come out as I had envisioned it lol . . . I wanted it to have pretty 3d butterflies and things for example lol.

I grabbed some different cardstocks to use and set to work. I used plain white as my base (9" x 4.5"), I then cut a 4.5" frame using my ecraft out of pearl cs and put the frame aside for another time and used the middle bit lol. Next I used a Lifestyle Crafts Doily Die to cut a doily out of white glitter cs from an American Crafts Christmas Glitter stack. I then used the pearl again to cut a Nesting Circle Doily, followed by an acetate Nesting Circle. I also cut four butterfly corners for the Corners It Kit.

I adhered the first pearl cs to my square base with tape and then glued the butterfly corners down with Matte Multi Medium. I then glued the doily on. Onto my acetate circle I stamped a Fiskars Wishes All Around Best Wishes stamp (had to do it a few times as I kept lining in up wrong ;) lol). I then hid some foam squares I had cut in half under the stamped scallops and adhered it to my small nesting lace doily. I used more foam tape and adhered it to my card and it was done.

That didn't stop me from trying to add some butterflies though lol . . .  They just wouldn't work for me :(. I have some leftover pieces from this card so maybe I will try again but add a different shape for the greeting. I do love the shadow the greeting gives onto the white though :)
Happy Scrappin'
