A Winter White Magnolia

     Okay ladies, hats off to those of you who can make monochromatic cards!  I really struggled with this one.  Guess I'm too much of a color person.  I kept wanting to add something else cause I felt like it looked so bare.
     It's a very simple card.  Just plain white cardstock.  I used the Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder on the bottom mat and the frame.  The flower was printed out three times.  Two copies were cut out and layered with pop dots.  The frame is raised up on pop dots too so that the layered flower sits in the recess.  White satin ribbon, some Crystal Stickles and a sentiment I made on the computer and cut out with a Nestie finish up the card.  I told you it was simple. :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
City Crafter--Winter White
Tuesday Throwdown--embossing

Have a great weekend!


Paper:  Georgia Pacific

  1. very pretty card, tracy! i like color in my cards too, but you did your beautifully. love that embossing folder and crystal stickles is one of my faves! thanks for sharing and have a great weekend! *hugs* steph :)

  2. I'm with ya' on this one!! Your's is absolutely beautiful but I never like mine. I always think it needs something and that something is usually COLOR!! You pulled it off perfectly!! I love the embossing and frame. VERY elegant!!

  3. Well Tracy, I'm one for colours, too, but sometimes less is more and this is a very good example. Because you used several layers, there's lots to look at (even though it's white), in short: you made an exquisitely elegant card! Have a great weekend, hugs, Ira
