White on White Cards

White on white cards always look so elegant to me.  I used a couple of different Cuttlebug folders to do these.  And I tried three different embellishments on the butterflies before I decided the pearls looked the best.

Frosted Lace Stickles look dull on the white cardstock, silver Stickles had too much contrast and leaving the butterfly plain just didn't work either.  So, I got out my white adhesive pearls that I've been rationing out!  It's a good thing that GASC is in a little over a month!  Shirley and I went last year and bought a lot of embellishments for only $1 a package and I'm running out of all of them!

The flowers and branch were done with a SU punch.  I rounded the corners with my Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper.  That's the best corner rounder I've ever used!

Lovely ! What folder did you use for the second card ?I 'm not familiar with that one.

Linda said...

Robin--it's called Scrollwork. I think it's one I picked up at Big Lots when they had them for $2.

Beautiful, Linda! Your cards are lovely! I've seen that scrollwork folder so many times in the stores but never got it because I didn't think that I would really use it - until now that is (you enabler! Lol).
I can't wait until GASC, too, and meeting you!
