The theme this week over at Our Creative Corner is "Clean and Simple", meaning less is best. Well, anyone who knows me, pretty much knows I can't do "less". I have to glitter it, brad it, rhinestone it, Cuttlebug it, and more! So this challenge was exceedingly hard for me. I kept reaching for stuff, then saying to myself "you can't use that!" I love how my card turned out, but I know I could have added more!
White seems to convey simple yet elegant, so I went with that color scheme with a splash of color for my main image. I printed an antique postcard onto Whisper White cardstock, then layered it to a scalloped rectangle Nestabilities cut out of white glittery cardstock. I created my background paper using the "Textile" embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. I added filigree corners from the same white glittery cardstock that I cut out with a Sizzix die. My embellishments consist of tiny pearls, satin ribbon and a pretty bow. I put it all together onto a white card measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.
