Cupcake craft challenge #123 – DT card



Hello I’m back again to share my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week the lovely Catherine La Chic has set our theme and she has chosen ‘white is white’, you may use other colours but your card must be predominately white.  I actually haven’t made many all white cards but I really like the look of them when other people make them.  I decided to emboss a grid pattern on the background with my MS scoreboard (although it’s difficult to tell in my usual dodgy picture) and used a cuttlebug embossing folder (script) for the smaller panel.  I did manage to make an all white card (apart from the image of course) although I lightly inked the edges of my card with a chalk ink pad.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 123 - white is white

I have used my brand new sugar nellie stamp from the simply sassy range called ‘luv a latte’.  I have ordered a few more as they are gorgeous and so lovely to colour.  I’m sure you’ll see more of these images very soon. 

Our sponsor this week is the very generous Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $20.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.  Not only that but they are offering free shipping too!! 


Starting this month we will be having a monthly prize called ‘icing on the cupcake’ and this is just a second chance to win a prize.  This month we are sponsored by our very own Jelly i.e. Victoria and she is offering a brilliant Stampin’ Up prize (a selection of 12x12 Stampin’ Up! papers, a pack of basic rhinestones, a Sale-A-Bration Brochure and a Stampin’ Up! Techniques Booklet).  You don’t need to do anything, apart from enter a challenge of course, and one lucky random winner will be chosen at the end of the month.
