One of Clare's all time favorite paper crafting color themes is all white!  It's all about simplicity and texture and there is nothing as elegant!

Here are some tips for working with all white:
1)  Create texture:  use multiple medias such as white card stock, white vellum, ribbon, etc.
2)  Make it pop:  use glitter to highlight areas and make them pop!
3)  Add dimension-use more than one layer by cutting more layers or adding embellishments.

For this card Clare wanted to make a wedding card that was all white for her step sister.  She loves the lacy wedding dress cards, so she decided to make my own. She started with Cricuts Sweetheart Cartridge and  used the card image of the bride.  She added an image from the Cricut Damask Decor and welded it.  She thought the bride needed some head dress, so Clare used another Damask Decor image on her head. 
Clare says you can get this lacy look with any digital cutter, just combine a bride image with a lace image and weld.  Below you can see the two images she combined for her card using the Cricut.  Similar images can be made with a Silhouette, or other cutter.
She backed the cut with plain vellum.  Clare then used the Art Glitter Ultra fine glue tip to high light the vellum and the white paper.  She hoped to achieve the look of re-embroidered lace.  Clare loved the way this turned out!  To finish the head dress, Clare tied a simple bow and glued it to get the look of the veil.  Clare decided to stamp the sentiment inside the card to keep the card look clean.
