Having gone seriously Maximalist last week, I had intended to pare down this time. (I stress the word INTENDED in that sentence, lol.) I was still very inspired by the incredible tree, and wanted to make a bauble-shaped card which was mostly white-on-white, but with little hits of green. That part did actually happen. The pared-down-ness... not so much...
I started with a fairly neutral base of nearly white from Prima's Pretty Pale Collection, because I had what I thought might be a pretty cool idea: to add some snowflake stickers, as well as punching some snowflakes right into my bauble shape. I popped the area directly around the snowflakes up on foam tape so that there'd be a sense of depth between the layers, but I left the edges flat. Then I sewed around the two layers. Up until this point, my bauble-shaped card was still pretty CAS. I embellished with some fussycut patterned paper leaves and added a seam-binding bow to the top. Still sorta CAS. I figured it couldn't hurt to add just a few flowers, from various collections, old and new. I may have got sliiiiiiightly carried away, because as you can see: it's no longer even remotely clean or simple, lol. Ah well. I do love how it came out and I think it's a nice tribute to the tree in the inspo photo.
