OWH VCMP 2013 Challenge #9

Challenge #9 is a bit of a hard challenge. I use white on my cards for accent or for the sentiments but to create an all white card. Yikes! It is a scary thought for me. I mean, I'm the kind of person who can't wear white clothes as something always happens to the wonderful white. You know, red spaghetti sauce down the front of the new white blouse or the only mud puddle in the parking lot and, yep, you walk through and spatter mud on the new white pants. So, to complete an all white card with layers could be a card making nightmare. I cleaned off the table and started with clean mats on the table. I put all the ink pads away and all the glittery ribbon left over from the 3-4 Valentine's cards I had created.

Challenge 9: My theme for today is All White/Cream with 3 Layers. The challenge:   Create a card using white and/or cream card stock with the exception of the sentiment.  The sentiment (if you choose to have one) may be any color.  Also there should be layers -- at least three (3) layers of something, i.e. any combo of card stock, lace, ribbon, fabric, or some sort of fiber for texture and interest.  Any embellishment must be white or cream.

OK, the challenge is accepted. I have the bits and pieces cut for the 12 cards but here's the first one.

I embossed the first layer of white paper, using the Wicker Weave folder in my Cuttlebug. I told you that  little Cuttlebug got a lot of use the other night at Archiver's on Friday night. I had gotten just the Wicker Weave embossing done at Archiver's. I finished the card today when I am playing in my scrapbook room while the hubby watched the race.  I layered the cut pieces of paper from Making Memories's doily 12x12 paper on top of the embossed paper. Then I added a scalloped rectangle with a sentiment using VersaMark Dazzle and silver embossing powder and using pop dots on the scalloped piece. The sentiment is from a wedding stamp set by Inkadinkado I found on clearance at Joann's. This sentiment I used was covered up by a tag so at first I didn't realize the Happy Anniversary was even in the set.  The silver and white flowers are from the recent stop at Pat Catan's. I wish I had gotten more of the flowers but you know how it is. I used some white ruffly ribbon from my ribbon storage and, ta da, I did it. A white card! No mishaps!! 

I don't have enough of this ribbon and lace ribbon for all 12 cards. Some of them will have a butterfly lacey ribbon on them. I do hope the silver on the flowers won't disqualify my card from the all white with layers challenge but the plain one flowers I have are too big for this card.

I have 2 more challenges to do for the OWH VCMP 2013. I have paper cut for the second challenge and I'm not sure how to do Challenge #3 so that one will take some time. I have made:

Challenge #1 - 12 cards
Challenge #2 - 0 card
Challenge #3 - 0 card
Challenge #4 - 12 cards
Challenge #5 - 12 cards
Challenge #6 - 21 cards
Challenge #7 - 2 designs x12 cards = 24 cards
Challenge #8 - 12 cards
Challenge #9 - 1 card + 11 pieces for 11 more
Challenge #10 - 12 cards

Total cards so far for OWH VCMP 2013= 106 cards. 

I am getting close to my goal of 10 challenges with 12 cards per challenge but the clock is ticking loudly. Gotta go and make more cards!! Later.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oh my goodness -- you have really challenged yourself - making so many cards for each of the challenges. That is a great idea -- I might try maybe 4 or 5 per challenge - I have a touch time getting one done for each. Anyway -- back to your beautiful card. You met the challenge -- even with you little bits of silver on your flowers. I like the Wicker Weave embossing folder - It is becoming a favorite of mine. I like how you sandwiched the sentiment between the two rows of ribbon and the ruffly ribbon adds a nice touch to the card. Thanks for joining in the fun on this challenge.
