Happy Firday... 4th Double Feature!

Happy Friday everyone!! Today I have a Double Feature. I used Whisper White or Very Vanilla as my card base and keeping the cards on the clean and SIMPLE side. I have been seeing more of this and it looks so elegant and soft. (Not to mention when you need a quick card this may inspire you!)

The first card is using SU! Pocket Silhouette, Upsy Daisy and the butterfly is from Perennial Favorites.
I used my scallop scissors on the bottom edge. Then punched 1/16" holes. My butterflies were stamped on Baja Breeze and I added 1/2 back silver pearls to the lower wings. Waterfall Stickles was added to the stamped image. I have a close up photo, but it's hard to see the details. (Click to enlarge image.) I used my SU! Large texture wheel with Craft white on my Chocolate Chip CS along with my MS ZigZag Border Punch. I doubled my ribbon for a fun look! :)


The second card is using scraps of DP and adding double ribbon on top. I added the lace border using my MS punch then stamping my images with SU! Cameo Coral and Baja Breeze. The fun part I like the most is I adding my 1/2 back silver pearls I picked up at Michael's on 3 flower buds.

See close up photo for a better look! I hope you enjoy them and let me know what you think... I love it when you do!! Have a super day and we'll chat more again soon...

Smiles... Michelle :)

Love these cards Michelle - they're really modern, simple, clean lines and the colour combinations are wonderful.
Love the ribbons you've used and the two different edges in the top card - great job!

These are both terrific. Yes, you are right. I think we will be seeing more clean and simple cards on blogs and galleries. I really like the idea of being able to focus on the images and not all the embellishments.

wow! these cards are adorable! I really love the fun layouts and the attention to detail! Nancy gave me the info that you passed on! You are such a dear! I have to tell you a funny story, though. I accidentally added your info into my site feed and so I tried subscribing my sister to my blog to see if I fixed it and it subscribed her to your blog! I then went to feedburner and got the right code, but it still came up as your blog. Go figure! Anyway, I had to delete the whole widget to get it to go away! I am just a mess! LOL! THanks again for your help!

Your first card is just so pretty with those blue butterflies and the punched edges!

The second one is very simply elegant. Love the punched edge and the bling on the flowers too!
