Stampin' Up! Elegant Lines and Beautiful Wings with the Bigshot makes cards easy!

Hi guys! Hope all you mums out there have had awesome Mother's Day, both here and in the States. I spent mothers day with my mum. We crafted, it really was win win! We both decided we were going to make white on white cards for the Less is More challenge blog. Here is my version

I used Whisper White cardstock and some vellum in this card. This came together quickly and easily, because I used the Big Shot! which my mum got for Christmas last year. Mum has the Elegant Lines embossing folder, which I didn't like in the catalogue, but after using it, find it easy and fun to work with. I also used the Beautiful Wings Embossolit for the Big Shot, which cuts and embosses all in one! At the bottom of this card, I have added a strip of non Stampin' Up! lace which just finished this card off perfectly. Head on over to my mum's blog to see her 3 (!!) uploads to the white on white challenge!

I don't think of color on color until I see it - it's a big WOW and I need to remember to do it. Thanks for sending us to your mom's blog - you are both wonderfully creative!
