CAS Congratulations

An unexpected free day resulted in an afternoon making cards. I'm trying to stock up on cards that can be used for multiple occasions so that I just have to add an appropriate insert - this one can be used for an engagement or a wedding...




It was so difficult to get a good photo because the card was pearlised as well as being all white! I love the effect of white on white - so clean looking.

What I used:

Pearl card - Crafters Companion

Background die - Spellbinders

Heart die - Apple Blossom Crafts

Greeting die - The Range

Pearls - The Range


I'm playing along with the challenges at:

AAA Cards #232 - CAS white on white






Beyond the Blue Challenge #78 - white on white
