Playing with White Space on Cards

Happy Birthday White Space Card

Hey There!

I’ve really been trying to experiment with leaving more white space on my cards.

I am so used to covering the whole back ground with patterned paper.

Many of the cards and even scrapbook pages have lots of beautiful white space.

For both of these cards, I used Close To My Heart stamps from my stash.

I can’t get enough of these layered flower stamps.

I’m still loving the Blossoms paper pack as well. Also it helps that I already have that pile of scraps out and ready to go!

I love the simplicity of the black outline on white background.

The Thank You card uses a spotlight technique. I stamped the back ground in black outline and popped card stock that matched up with the background, but had color added.

The Happy Birthday card is actually from an idea for a scrapbook layout I adjusted to fit onto a card.

White space is really starting to grown on me. It takes me a little bit to get my head around “less is more” for cards, but I’m starting to like it!

Thanks for stopping by Emma Hearts Paper.

Happy Crafting!
