nice and clean for spring…

Good morning! Happy Friday! Emily here with you today with a pair of clean, white cards with just a pop of color. You know me, and you know how much I LOVE color. Unique color combos just make my heart flutter. But sometimes, a girl just needs some nice, bright, white space with a pop of color here and there. Both of my projects are an homage to the simplistic beauty of the Geometric Lattice Cover Plate. This was released a while ago, and it’s absolutely timeless. Such a great pattern, and when you do a tone-on-tone as I did here, the subtle texture is amazing.

For my first project is fairly simple. I started by die cutting the Geometric Lattice Cover Plate from some white card stock and adhering it to my white A2 card base. I stamped some beautiful peonies from Loose Peonies, heat embossed with our Rose Gold embossing powder and watercolored with Zigs, then fussy cut right down to the edge of the embossing (you could also use the coordinating dies, but I didn’t want the white of the card base to be thrown off by the slightly off-white of the watercolor paper).

For the sentiment, I heat embossed the sympathy greeting from Large Peony 2 again using our Rose Gold Embossing Powder onto some vellum that had been die cut with the smallest of our Large Double Stitched Rectangles. I placed everything where I wanted it on my card base, adhered the flowers to the corners of the stitched rectangle, then hid the dimensional adhesive behind the blooms so as to not mar the vellum with unsightly adhesive.

For my next card, I stayed with the white-on-white theme with a pop of shocking pink. I again layered a white die cut Geometric Lattice cover plate over a white A2 card base. I then die cut the Congratulations die three times, once from our Bright Pink adhesive foil, twice more from white card stock, then adhered them together to create a dimensional die cut.

To add a little something to this fairly simple card, I added a few blooms from the Scripty Alpha Lower that had been stamped with Grand Fuchsia, Plum Wine, and Ocean Teal and fussy cut.

Well, there you have it! Clean, bright, but with some pretty texture and pops of color. Hope you enjoyed my projects today! Have a fantastic weekend!
