One clean and simple card technique I really enjoy is the look of tone on tone white. When you have a die cut with some intricate designs, it looks very elegant with just a few small color additions.
For today’s project, I’m using a card creator die from Spellbinders. This particular one is not available currently in the store but you can find similar ones HERE. They’re basically a border die that cuts into the cardstock.
I trimmed off the edges to create a border to pop up on the front of my card.
I wanted a little bit of color to peek through the opening of the border, so I cut a strip of patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Spring Thing 6×6 paper pad.
I adhered the paper behind the border and added the piece to the front of an A2 size notecard with foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Sizzix Clear Spring Phrases stamp set along with Bahama Blue pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.
I liked all the little bits of color, but thought the die cut needed just a little more, so I added a few Nuvo Drops.
Just enough Nuvo Drops completes the card. Super clean and simple, but sometimes that’s all you need to celebrate a new season!
Thanks for joining me today.
