I have seen a lot of photographs, cards and pictures online using a colored background with a pop of white. I love this look and decided to create a card using it. Actually, in the coming weeks you are probably going to see a lot of cards using this idea (I am just warning you ahead of time).
To make this card I first took a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Gray Granite cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine using the Subtle 3D embossing Folder.. I love how this folder adds a little texture to the background of a card. I layered this onto a card base of Gray Granite. Next I cut the oval frame using two of the Layering Ovals dies in Whisper White cardstock and one in Gray Granite using the larger Oval. If you look closely you will see that the middle section inside the Oval frame is not embossed. I punched out the leaves using the Leaf Punch also using the Whisper White cardstock. I stamped two of the smaller daisies from Daisy Lane using So Saffron Ink and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch (you can save 10% by purchasing that stamp set and punch in a Bundle). I put everything together and then stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Such a lovely card, Susan! I do like the white on the neutral background. I’m looking forward to seeing more! 🙂
I can’t wait to see your other creations with this idea. I LOVE this card. The white really pops and the daisy and leaves are perfect. So fun. (Love the “un-embossed” gray oval, too. Nice touch.)
