The challenge over at Cards in Envy is "White on White". No color is to be used. Black can be used for the image and/or sentiment but everything else is to be white. This was not as hard as I first thought it would be.
I used an embossing folder to create the background. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Although it doesn't show in the photo, I applied clear Wink of Stella to give the butterflies some sparkle. I stamped the sentiment (a Unity stamp) and punched with a Stampin Up scalloped oval. I did put foam tape behind the sentiment. I bent the wings of the butterflies just to add dimension. They will lay flat for mailing.
I am actually very pleased with how it turned out.
I used black paper for the background to create contrast so you could see the details of the card.
Thanks for taking a look!
Have a good one!
