So over a period of days, I made four different cards for this challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. After I finished each one, I gave myself the night to sleep on whether I liked each card or not and would wake in the morning not liking it so much – very frustrating. But in the end, an unpleasant yet common aspect of any crafter’s experience, and a good exercise, however microcosmic, in letting go of our failures.
Ultimately, I chose this card for the White on White + One Color and Ribbon Challenge that has just begun over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
To create interest using purely white, I employed my Gingerbread Technique using an EK Success Snowflake Edger Punch. I often use embossing folders to create a classy white background as well.
Using Cranberry Pigment Ink from Clearsnap, I stamped an image and sentiment from Hampton Art’s SC0274 Holiday Dreams & Wishes Clear Stamp Set onto a tag cut with a Fiskars XXL Tag Punch, and bound the tag to this very dimensional card using Peppermint Baker’s Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
