White on White Anja’s Border and Butterfly

Good Monday morning.  My project today was made with my new Marianne Design Anja’s Border and paired with the Impression Obsession Fancy Butterfly set and the foliage branch from the Poppystamps Massa Leaf frame set.  I love making white on white elegant cards but taking pictures of them not so much.  It is very difficult to get the lighting right and it is hard to capture all the detail.  I photographed this card with a several different colored backgrounds and the pink photos turned out the best. This was a really fast card to make and took about three times longer to take pictures than complete the project.  LOL!

I cut the border and attached it to the card base with mounting tape. I cut three branches of leaves, scored each leaf with my leaf tool and pad, curled the leaves in with my fingers and then attached to the border layer with glossy accents.

I cut both butterflies and attached them together with glossy accents.  I folded up the wings and attached it over the branches with glossy accents.I added the white pearls to the butterfly body for the finishing touch.

  5. Good Morning, Kittie What an elegant design with white on white, so good for special occasions. Lace, and the butterfly conveys the soft touch of love and beauty added pearls of ellegence. So well done. Gorgeous.

  6. This is absolutely Stunning Kittie! I agree with you on taking photographs of white cards. My camera seems to love the brighter colors more . . . LOL! I love Marianne dies, did you know all my stencils are Marianne stencils. I was fortunate to meet Marianne at CHA in Orlando several years ago and she’s a delight! We still occasionally e-mail back and forth. I’m so happy to see Ellen carrying her dies in her store.

  7. A gorgeous, elegant card, Kittie!
    I love how you used the Marianne Design dies, it seems a lovely, elegant bag!
    A Great idea!!
    Thank you for sharing…..hugs, Eva.
