White on White Birthday Card

 This white on white birthday card was inspired by the following two challenges:
 I've been using a lot of computer generated sentiments lately.  I find it easier to make what I want on the computer and print it out than to keep buying sentiment stamps.  Is that cheating?  I'm not sure.  I thought I'd share with you how I make my sentiments.  

I print out what I'd like in the size I'd like on either plain paper or a large label.  If it's on plain paper, I use my xyron to add adhesive to the paper and stick it to white cardstock, or I stick the label to white cardstock.  Then I can easily cut that out with a Spellbinders die and use it on my card.

If your printer can handle printing on cardstock, then you can do this even easier and print right on the cardstock.  There's no limit to your sentiments this way.  Sentiments, sizes and fonts are limitless.  
 Here's the inside.  I always make the inside match the card not only because it's a nice detail but with layers on the front of the card, the card is more balanced when it has at least one layer added to the inside.

Stamps/Images: Sentiment is computer generated 
Paper: Georgia Pacific White Cardstock
Ink/Coloring: none
Accessories: Spellbinders Beaded Oval Dies,  Grosgrain ribbon, Lace, Buttons, Cuttlebug/Embossing Folders, Flat Backed Pearls.

WOW! This is gorgeous and so classy! I'm intrigued by your sentiments on the computer. What font do you use and point size? Your chocolate bars look great, too. You do a fabulous job of using the spellbinders to jazz up your creations.
