I recently joined a group on Facebook that has swaps. One swap is White on White. Oh my goodness, how do you put a sentiment on a card that has to be all white? I have completed monochromatic color challenges. Key word COLOR! Using multiple shades of one color. Plus I wanted it to fit my style of card making: Quick, Creative, and Cute!
Most of my idea hit me at once. My favorite tool, the Big Shot. Lucky me, I had just ordered the Greetings Thinlits Dies. I love it when an idea comes to me so quickly, don’t you? All I had to do was to decide which embossing folder to use for texture. I chose the Polka Dot embossing folder.
A few tips I have tried lately when cutting with thinlits has been using wax paper in-between my card stock and die. The same with dryer sheets. With this card, I tried the latest tip (which is also free). Cut up a plastic grocery bag and layer that around your card stock. It worked wonderfully.
I like this idea because I have a plastic bag filled with plastic bags from the grocery store. The only reason I have ever bought wax paper for is for crafting. I want to use my dryer sheets for my laundry. Now I have an item I can use up that normally just takes up space on my counter. I need that space for chocolate after all.
What types of challenges have you taken part in lately?
