Hello Again, thanks for popping by,
Today I’ve created this gorgeous White on White card for the Card Crafters Circle challenge this week.
A Challenge it was too – I ended up having to use just a little colour (Stampin Up’s Sahara Sand to be precise). I embossed my new Paperbag Studios ‘Grace’ stamp with White embossing powder on White cardstock. She was just a little too hard to see, so I inked over her with the Sahara Sand and I think she looks wonderful!
There is quite a bit of embossing on the base layer and I’ve layered two more plain squares behind her to lift her up and define a frame around her. I swiped the edges of these layers with ink too. The Chipboards are set up high too. A border die cut was placed along each side and lost of ribbon & paper flowers were used.
It was difficult to take a photo of this card so I’ve taken it with the light in different places for you.
The chipboard letters were painted with white acryllic paint and dabbed over with glitter glue. The beautiful rose ribbon was another purchase I made at the closing down sale yesterday of my favourite and local craft shop.
The Wonderful sentiment was cut out of a digi that was free over at Birds cards. I trimmed the word out and then glued it to a Spellbinder 4 shape. I embossed the whole shape with the word glued in place and it kind of hid the edges where I’d cut around the sentiment and stuck it down.
Word of warning if your going to try this – make sure the glue is dry before you emboss it all together, otherwise the glue squeezes out and it all sticks to the embossing folder in a gluggy mess!
I hope you like my card as much as I do, I’ll enter it at the following challenges as well as Card Crafters Circle’s White on White Challenge, for which it was made.
