# Akara Lace Border # Bonnie Garby

Elegant White on White Anniversary Card

Hi friends.  Bonnie here from Make Time to Craft.  I've been having a ball playing around with my Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.  I just love that there are so many different ways to use them.

Since the Cheery Lynn Challenge theme this week is Winter Whites, I thought I would give it a go.  I must say, it's really hard to do an all white card.  Looking back, I can see that adding a colored image would have helped quite a bit, but since it wasn't a total fail, I thought I would share.


I started with a white 5-1/2" square card base.  I then cut 4 pieces of the Ankara Lace Border.  I cut the ends of each piece at a 45 degree angle to form a frame.  I then topped that with a 4-1/4" square of white shimmer paper backed with some white mulberry paper.  On top of that sits the Felicity Doily which is topped with mini fanciful flourishes and a beautiful Shasta Daisy.  The anniversary sentiment is bracketed by two pretty little flowers from the Sweet Christine die strip with leaves from the Ivy Strip, and it's all finished off with a gorgeous double-loop, double-layer bow using White Delicate Stitched Satin and my Bow-it-All Tool from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


Is this flower gorgeous or what?  This Shasta Daisy Die is a MUST HAVE die if you love making paper flowers.  You can whip these beautiful daisies up in no time.  They are so quick and easy.

I am so glad I visited your blog and saw your card...I am kind of embarrassed, because I have seen the Cheery lynn logo before...but for some reason I thought they sold digi stamps...didn't realize it was dies :0) I like dies :0) COOL BEANS!!
