Friends with Flair - Celebrations in White

I joined a swap over at the scrapzee forum for white on white cards - wow, deciding on how to decorate these cards was much harder than I expected! I thought at first that I might go with cards like these, but after a search on Pinterest, decided to do a bit more embellishing.

I pulled out my trusty Silhouette Cameo and started cutting...the card base is a great design from Birds Cards. The size I cut it out was a mistake, as it is smaller than a standard size, but once I decided to add the flowers off the edge, I decided to leave them smaller, since the card still fits in a standard envelope. The flower is from the Silhouette online store by Lori Whitlock. I added the ribbon through the card front - and then decided to leave the front as is.

I added just a bit of color with the inside though, using light blue cardstock to line the cards, and finding just the right stamp for the card in my Unity stamps. I wanted the cards to be versatile, since they are for a swap, and I figured that this sentiment could be used for several occasions...birthday, graduation, wedding, congratulations, whatever!

I'm trying to use up what I have...instead of just buying and storing...but with the stash that I'll still be a while before I feel a pinch, I'm sure! ;)


  • cardstock: coredinations (white), stash (blue)
  • cut files: bird's cards (card base), silhouette america (flower)
  • ribbon: dollar tree
  • brad: making memories
  • stamp: unity

All in all, lots of fun!
