A Way With Words Cardmaking Craft Drops Inspiration from the Design Team Soft Finish Cardstock

White Washed Crafting

July 24, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am creating a little bit of a festive card using a Christmas die from designer Suzanne Cannon that really could be used year round. However, I am also using one of my favorite crafting techniques leaving the project all white for a touch of crisp elegance. I just love how ECD’s Soft Finish Cardstock makes this technique so flawless.

Step One: Die cut two frames from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Use the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set for the large frame, and two of the Stitched Indented Square dies for the smaller frame.

Step Two: Using more 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut a third frame and the sentiment from the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament die set.

Step Three: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the large rectangle frame to an A2 card frame.

Step Four: Using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the square frame to the card on a diagonal. Trim off excess.

Step Five: Using a liquid adhesive such as Kid Choice Glue, adhere both the ornament frame and the sentiment to the center of the card.

Step Six: Adhere a few white and iridescent sequins to the card frame for more visual interest.

Step Seven: Finish off the project with a few dollops of both Transparent Crystal and White Craft Drops.

I hope you enjoyed this super simply yet elegant project.

    Beautiful. Great use of multiple dies. I tend to a lot of color. This card demonstrates the beauty of white on white and to the details of the dies. Thank you.
