Clean and White

Ok so this is my second post for today!  Oops!  Scroll down to see my first one!

As much as I love layers and layers and bling and stuff.....I also love clean and simple!  Today I have 2 cards that are just so fun and bright and clean!  Ok here is the first one....

I love that butterfly die and that coordinating set!  What a smart and fun idea! 


Here is a card that is totally cased by Maile Belles.  When I saw her post, I put everything down and went to make one of my own!  I love how she raised the front and added the buttons!  She does amazing work!  I usually don't case,  but I had to jump in and re-create this one! 

Thanks for coming by today!  Hope you are having a fantastic day!

Love your clean & simple cards! The score lines & dots are great - love the layered butterfly. I loved Maile's card too (saved it right away for later inspiration) & you've done a wonderful take on it...

I really like the first card Laurie Beth. It's just stunning. Sometimes simple makes a BIG statement, and your card rocks.
You take on Maile's card is pretty too.

What a stunning pair! I love your CAS style and these turned out awesome! Casing Maile's cards is on my list, too.

Great Cards and I love Maile's card too... I may "CASE" it too!

Jackie Pedro said...

GASP!!! Gorgeous cards!! I don't normally CASE either, but I also would have dropped everything to CASE Maile's card, however, I'm still waiting for my dies to arrive!

Laurie, I love, love, love your first card! I love the simplicity of it! SO great, the sentiment goes perfect. Such a great card!

Anika said...

Great cards! Love the simplicity! I was drooling over that card of Maile's too!

Diane Jaquay said...

OK, these are both just FABULOUS CAS cards!! On the first one I really LOVE the layered butterfly, and the way you used an embossed line AND a paper pierced line together! The second one is a technique I've been wanting to try every since I first saw it, I just love the look of the flower cut outs!

Jennifer K said...

Oh gosh, Laurie. Both cards are wonderful. I love, love, love the layered butterfly and embossing on the first card.

These are both gorgeous! I am a fan of white space and you do it well :)

Robyn said...

You did a beautiful job on both! But I must ask a question...What does Case mean??? I need to know if it's a bad or good thing and if I'm guilty of it! LOL I'm anxiously awaiting an answer!!

Suzanne said...

I totally understand why you cased that second card! It's awesome. TFS!

Shiloh said...

Great cards! I really love the cut out flower!

Niki Estes said...

Beautiful cards, Laurie! I love the CAS designs and the white with a pop of color!

Michelle said...

great "white space" cards. I'm terrible at those - yours are so pretty! Wish I could make some that look this good :)

Pat said...

Simply elegant! Love all the details.

Maile Belles said...

These are gorgeous, love your layered butterfly. By the way, I truly enjoy your creations!

Christine said...
