Way to Go - 365 Cards Challenge - White Space - Day #347

Here are a few cards I made up inspired by today's challenge at 365 Cards - White Space. Though I love the sketch, I had a really hard time with carrying out this white space challenge literally, so I did a few "takes". I should mention, the color scheme is based on the branded image for CNIB (the non-profit I work for) as this card is for a co-worker who recently graduated from her course and we were going to present her with a card and her certificate at the same time. Unfortunately, I may have missed it as I missed work the last two days. If I'm too late, I'll just add them to my stash. Still, it will bug me if they had to buy a store-bought card -gasp!

Hmm, I'm not sure if I like the second or the third best. What do you think?

A quick stamp of a tree from the same set finished off the inside.

And since I didn't use any patterned paper, I am also entering this in the La La Weekly Wednesday Challenge which is to NOT use patterned paper.

I hope you are all having a great week! Thankfully, I am starting to feel more like myself. :)



What I used:
stamps: Treetops - CTMH, Say it in Style - CTMH
inks: Clover Meadow & Dutch blue - CTMH
embellishments: misc brads and gingham ribbon


  1. I like the third one the best. I don't think I could do the White Space challenge. My poor spritzer or the glimmer mist would just keep calling to me. Congrats, you did a great job!

  2. These are all so cute, I love that stamp set!

  3. Nice and simple, you are right it's hard to do the white space thing but I like the finished result. I like the first one best :-) Take care!

  4. Hi Shanna! Great "white space" cards!! I think I like the 3rd best, although I love your gingham ribbon, but I think the darker card base grounds it... whatever THAT means! LOL. But they're all really nice =) Thanks for playing along with us at LaLa Land Crafts!

  5. Fabulous cards! Like the third one the best! But I think you did fantastic job on all three of them!
    Thank you so much for playing with us at La-La Land!

  6. Hey, I like the first one best. Didn't realize you were feeling so yucky. I'm going to call tonight, but first we're taking the kids out for dinner. Hope you're doing better.

  7. Love the clean and beautiful look of the first card with lots of white space! TFS
