Make it Monday #209 - White on White Die Cuts w/ a Pop of Color

Hello friends.  Playing along with this weeks Make it Monday challenge, where Lexi Daly shows us some eye popping cards using white on white die cuts and then adding just a simple pop of color.  This was a fun challenge and surprisingly easy to do, once you decide what dies to use that is!  I ended up going for a juvenile birthday card using the dies from Sweet Baby and Wonderful Words: Birthday.  Take a look:



I used double layers of the die cut animals, except for the head of the lion where I used 3 layers, and then the word "birthday", where I used 5 layers.  I like the 3 layers on the lion, but I wish now that I had kept the word "birthday" to just 2 or 3 layers too...little bit of overkill there I guess.  My pop of color came with the balloon from Birthday Style which I inked up in Aqua Mist.  Clean, simple, and fun...I will definitely be using this technique again! :0)

You can check out all of Lexi's cards (she made a bunch as examples!), her video, and all the other great entries right here. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)

  3. Marci great card dies for this technique. Wonderful bday card. There is a lot of gymnastic involved to capture the WOS, usually my phone camera and on an angle till I see it in the light. Make sense?
