White Space!!!

I have a fear of white space. I love how it looks, but I just can't seem to embrace it on my layouts and cards. So, when I saw this card in the Big Picture Classes 28 Cards in 4 Weeks class that I am taking, I knew I had to scrap-lift it to give to Laurie for the scrap-tastic presents she gave me for my birthday!


I started with plain cream cardstock and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress ink.The sentiment is from SU!  I cut a small slit in the fold of the card and fed baker's twine through it twice, then tied it in the center. I cut the heart from some patterned paper, added the button to it and pop-dotted it off the card. I had the little clothespins in my stash forever; they are soooo cute! And that was it! My brain wanted to add more, but I embraced and walked away. I may conquer this white space fear, after all!

  1. Such a beautiful card, and I LOVE white space. The girls make fun of me! This picture doesn't do it justice. There is an antique green stamped around the entire card and it gives it such an old fashioned look. Great job, Dawn!
