White On White

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #174 this week was white on white. I've never done a white on white card and if I'm honest the idea terrified me a little, but I have seen some absolutely stunning ones out there so I decided to give it a go.

I combined that with this weeks Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #57 - More that Words (create a card using a long sentiment or a verse) and came up with the card below.




I used a 5x5 card base, ran a slightly smaller piece of white card through the cuttlebug with swiss dots folder. Then cut a plain and scalloped square from more white card with my nesties and used a very pale silver ink to ink a flower and embossed it with clear powder onto the white square. I used my nesties again to cut the vellum with the verse (it was in a magazine I got about 2yrs ago... and stuck that over the top of the white square. Added ribbon and pearl hearts from my stash and layered it all up.

For my first attempt at white on white (except for the verse obviously...) I don't hate it. I think it could make a very nice card for an engagement/wedding/anniversary depending on the verse I put inside.
