Today's CAS Challenge from SCS is CAS174 - White-on-white.  I have made several cards using white-on-white and I love the look - so clean and fresh!  Today I made two cards for this challenge ... one is a spring card and the other, a Christmas card ... I know, I know ... it's a bit early for me to start my Christmas cards, but I had this idea in my head and had to try it out!  :)

The first card uses a fun layout that I CASED from mamamostamps at SCS ... just love this CAS layout and plan to use it again!  I paper pieced the daisies.

"Trio of Gingham Daisies"

Stamps:  Daisies for Her (Clear Dollar Stamps Digital Images by Lisa Lara)
Paper:  White Cardstock (C.C. Designs); Pumpkin Pie polka-dot DP (SU!); yellow gingham (Making Memories)
Accessories & Tools:  Pumpkin Pie button, Lemondrop Twine (The Twinery), glue, adhesives, and dimensionals

I printed off my image and sentiment from my computer.  I printed the image twice more - once on yellow gingham paper, once on Pumpkin Pie polka-dot DP.  I cut out the flowers, and layered the orange centers on top of the yellow daisies and then glued them onto my card front.

I mounted all the pieces as shown in the photo above, popping up the main panel and adding the banners, button and twine.

No stamping on this card ... just dry embossing and die-cuts.

"Snow Scene"

Paper:  White cardstock (C.C. Designs); Night of Navy cardstock (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Oval die-cuts (Spellbinders), Modern Landscape die-cut (Memory Box), Snowflake embossing folder (Cuttlebug), adhesives, and dimensionals

Die-cut the modern landscape and mounted it onto Night of Navy cardstock; then onto my white card base.  Cut an oval from my card front and then ran it through with the embossing folder.  Cut an oval border, mounted it on top of the opening and then mounted my card front to the card base, popping it up with dimensionals to add depth.

Two clean, crisp and gorgeous cards. I LOVE them both. Your winter scene die is so wonderful. You should make more of these cards for the holidays. TFS and brightening my day. Nancy L

Both cards are beautiful. You have given me some inspiration for my Christmas card design. Thank you.

Love both of these (I just remember that I have that digital daisy image - I really should use it), but the Christmas card blew me away - I may have to case it exactly as it is because I can see no possible way to improve it! Stunning!

I love both cards. The holiday card actually looks like it is complex, but sounds simple! Perfect!

The holiday card is very easy and quick. Just need to emboss the front panel (any embossing will look good with white-on-white), use the oval die-cuts and landscape die-cut, stick together and ... voila ... done. Probably could make this in about 10 minutes once you know what folder you're using.
