Art and Craft

Coming Back to White

After several sessions in the craft room with lots of inks and mists, once in awhile it’s really refreshing to come back to white.  When I limit myself to white, textures become the focus.  And the result is always clean. Today I pulled on some of Brenda Walton’s line of dies and embossing folders with Sizzix to craft a wedding card for a dear old friend who will be tying the knot this July!

VivianKehWeddingCard_1To start, I dry embossed a piece of white cardstock using the “Roses” embossing folder.  See the Sizzix sandwich above?   I spread out my sandwich a bit so you can see the order clearly.  If there’s ever any question about which tab to use, just refer to the illustrations on the multi-purpose platform.

VivianKehWeddingCard_2After sending that through, I die cut a few of the pieces in the “Floral Wreath” Thinlits Set – there are so many dies in this one!  These die-cuts will be layered for a pretty focal image.

VivianKehWeddingCard_3Sizzix has a new Die Brush and Foam Pad that remove tiny bits and pieces from dies and die-cuts.  I know this will be a real time-saver when I want to craft an elegant card but I’ve waited until the very last minute.

VivianKehWeddingCard_HiResI backed this one with some pre-embossed cardstock from Core’dinations, added some organza, pearl dots, and to add just a little more contrast, a small silver heart.
