I've never really gotten into the whole CAS thing when it comes to my paper crafting. It is definitely a look that I admire and appreciate, but I like "stuff" too much and can't seem to help piling it on my pages. However, when I saw this week's Recipe Swap over at the Catered Crop, I knew that it was a good time to try something a little bit different.
I've had these images pinned to my Pinterest board for quite a while. I love the simplicity of the white on white, and I am a huge fan of typographic art. Unfortunately, with 4 little kids in the house, white is not a color I use very frequently in my decor.
However, I've always thought that these canvases would translate very well as a card.
Supplies Used: American Crafts Cardstock & Ribbon
At first I was going to use Thickers (painted white) on a white cardstock background to achieve the look I was going for, but I couldn't find quite the right font in my stash. Then I remembered that, (thanks to my wonderful husband) I have a Silhouette Cameo!!! and can cut out any shape that I want. I simply created my graphic, mounted the words with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension and slipped a piece of ribbon in behind the words. I originally intended to keep the whole card completely white, but it looked a little bit...boring... so I added just a touch of purple cardstock. I finished it all off with a spray of glimmer mist, but I don't think that really shows up in the picture.
Now head on over to the Catered Crop to check out all the details of this week's White Pages Recipe Swap!
