Hello friends!  It's Tuesday and that means it's time or another challenge over at Shopping Our Stash!  Thanks to everyone who played along with our Winter challenge the last two weeks!  This week we are back to a new challenge every Tuesday.  This time around we want to see your all white or all ivory/cream cards.  (If you use an image it can contain skin/fur tones and hair tones and your sentiment (if used) can be in any color).

I needed a wedding card this week so this challenge seemed to be perfect for me!  This card was going to be white, but, alas, I only had one sheet of white CS.  And, well, you know me.  Any card I make needs plenty of layers and one sheet of CS wasn't going to cut it.  Thankfully I had plenty of cream!
I punched the corners of the bottom layer with a MS corner punch (First stash item).  I embossed the corners of the next layer with clear embossing powder (#2).  The next 2 layers are dies from Becca Feeken's kits at Amazing Paper Grace.  LOVE her stuff.  LOVE her cards.  LOVE her!  I inked the edges of the layers with a creamy color (#3).  The cream cream pearls and seam binding are from my stash (#4 & #5).
The inside is a bit hard to see, but I repeated the bottom 2 layers in here which leaves me plenty of room to write my message to the new couple.  You can see I mounted a couple of the layers on the front on foam to give it some added interest.  I use scraps of fun foam (#6) from my children's stash since they don't use it anymore.  A bit of tacky glue and this works great!  And its inexpensive!

Now it's your turn.  Dig into your stash and join us this week!

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,

  5. Hi Michelle! Lovely, lovely! Love the layering of the variety of die cuts...very elegant! And even the inside is gorgeous! The cream with the softly distressed edges is so rich looking. Great job!

  6. I think I like this in cream better than I would in white. It was meant to be!
