White on White Monochromatic cards

I think my new favorite color is white…is that possible?!?!?

Shaunte Wadley created these beauties for us today…wowzas! Creating dramatic monochromatic projects is so easy with Core because you can mix and match the different lines for some sparkle…emboss for some texture and you have the perfect card.  For each card, I listed the  lines she used so you can look closely and see beautiful details. Little things like different embossed layers, pearls and stitching make all the difference.

For more monochromatic ideas check out a post we did a few weeks ago HERE.

Card One is the simpliest with a David Tutera Cardmaking system white smooth cardbase, Core Essentials white, and the butterfly is Core Couture.

Card two: start with a David Tutera Cardmaking system white cardbase and emboss it.  Then add a strip of Core Couture with die cut letters, then emboss some Core Essentials white in another strip. Stitch together. Then add butterflies laong the top in Glitter Silk and a strip along the bottom from Step 3 of the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system.

Again, starting with a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system smooth white cardbase, emboss a layer in white Core Essentials. Adhere with Helmar Zap dotsafter punching a hole in the side, add white heart on a string from Glitter Silk Cardstock, finish by creating some embossed strips along the bottom with scalloped pieces, an embossed strip from Core Couture and a banner created using a Dymo Label maker.

  7. Wow! White layout says a lot! Clearly you put up more on the designing part. What did you do aside from stitching? How do Dymo Label maker improve the quality of the output? I was so stunned with your work, this is so wonderful!

    Simple but beautiful card! It’s a challenge to make a monochromatic card interesting, but these cards do it. A bit of white, black or neutral might be there, but these cards basically are all one color in varying tones, patterns or textures. Did you stitch as an additional layout?

Do you have a tutorial for embossing? Simple but beautiful layout, Shaunte!
