White on White Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the "You're the Man" Badge Winners


It's time for a new card challenge!  Our theme this time may be a bit more difficult or easier, depending on who you ask.  We are looking for WHITE ON WHITE CARDS.  Please see the designer examples for more clarification.  No color paper or embellishments--white only, please. You may use  a black or color ink if needed for your sentiment and black ink for your image but do not add color.  When we look at your card we must see white on white.  Your card can be any size and any shape but has to be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing. This would be a great time to make some beautiful wedding cards or snowy winter Christmas cards.

As mentioned above, if you are confused on the White on White challenge theme, look to these fabulous samples by our CIE Designers.  For more details about their card creation, click on the blog name link by their name and while there please leave them some comment love.
