White Space

I read all the time that people have trouble making a card and keeping it simple. Me, I'm the complete opposite. I have trouble using more than one patterned paper on my card. Actually I once told my mom that if I had my way all of my cards would be white, with a simple dry embossed frame and a pretty little colored image sitting in the middle gettin' all the attention.

So when I saw Stamping Bella had these little purses in the Cilla Rose Collection I immediately thought of colouring them up in nice bright colors and giving them center stage on a pure white card. I think if I mounted them singly like that it would make a nice little set of note cards to give as a gift. Emily...if you are reading, I would LOVE to have some really cute single shoes to go with these purses!

On to the details...I colored these little purses with my copics, cut them out with my nesties and mounted them on another piece of white paper. then I embossed the edge of the card with my scor pal and cut another piece of white paper to sit just inside that scor line. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that font! Actually, I love everything about this card!

Enjoy!

Great card Linda. Love this layout. May have to give this a try. Your coloured images are so bright & vibrant. You could colour on a lunch bag and make it totally amazing.

Linda this is simply gorgeous! You sure can color! I saw your blog link on Amy Sheffer's site and you are now added to my favorites. Thanks for all the info on Paper Pickle - I'm from Port Huron, Michigan (just across the border) and our local paper crafting store is closing in three weeks. The DH has offered to take a drive with me to check out this beautiful store. The stamp wall alone will keep me busy for a the day!

Thanks for sharing!!!

Love your cards, Linda. I am with you when it comes to using patterned papers. If I use more than one, it never seems to match!
