PTI White on White Blog Hop
My shopping is done, and so is my wrapping. My niece is hosting Xmas, so I had some free time to play.
I made this for the Paper Trey PTI December Blog Hop: white on white.
I did not want to do a familiar snow or wedding themed white card. So I thought and thought, and this is what I came up with. I decided not to put on a sentiment, because I did not want to take away from the design. Plus I didn't make this for any specific upcoming occasion. This way in the future, I can still put an appropriate sentiment.
I used PTI Mega Gracious Vases die cuts, and the Filigree Border die. The ribbons, flowers, and pearls are pieces I have in my stash. You all have "a stash", right? The flowers are white and off-white. I liked the bit of contrast they offered. The paper is from PTI (white and rustic cream), except for the far right side vase. That is a glittered paper from Reminisce.
I was originally going to have a horizontal card, and scored 2 lines to use as the base-shelf for the vases. But the vases and flowers were too tall this way, and I didn't like it. So I was playing around and turned the card base, and I decided I liked the vases on a vertical card. And I really liked the way the 2 scored lines added some more vertical interest.
That's all for now. Hope you had a great holiday.
Thanks for looking.
