All White...

Morning Friends,

I'm feeling Loads better thanks for all your kind comments and suggestions, I skipped the cake making although would of considered Ang (Mrs Duck)'s suggestion for a recipe on Friday!

Reading through yesterdays comments lots of you raised the suggestion that the second card would have been better made in all white.  That got me thinking that white on white looks really good but I make cards in white very infrequently, therefore todays offering and a bonus!

This card is made using a new die I got form the local craft shop, Its a Nellie Sneddon flower die that cuts the delicate flower in six parts each getting larger.  To create the flower I threaded these onto small brads which allowed me to move the petals until I was happy with the finished result.

There is a sentiment on this but it is very hard to see!  I also tried to copy Sue Wilson's style of pierced edge cards using a piercing ruler I bought at the same time however this isn't very visible either!

Now here's the bonus, whilst I had the white cardstock out I thought I would have another go at yesterdays card using all your suggestions, so here goes, enjoy!


  1. Hi John, glad to hear you are on the mend. Gorgeous white on white card love that flower die. I have a wedding card to make and this has given me food for thought. The second card is super in white, what a difference from the other one is, sorry, drab colours.

  6. Hi John, what a difference just changing the colour can have on a card. White on white always looks classic, and like you something that I don't often do as I am to tempted to add some colour !!. The flower die is very similar to spellbinders "delicate aster" die, which is my all time favourite die. I use this flower almost every time because it works so well no matter which colour it is in.

  7. Glad you are feeling better today John. Two very pretty cards, I like the embossing folder and the flowers on the first one and what a difference a change in colour has made in the second card. Best wishes Jackie
