White on White

I am so ready for the weekend…………It’s been a busy week at work, some later nights than expected, and now I can look forward to spending some time crafting. The joys of free time!

This card is inspired by the challenges from Cards In Envy and Addicted to CAS. Both themes are for white on white card. I have done some white on white card previously and found it quite challenging, but thought I’d have another go for these two challenges.

I stated with a ‘Next Level’ embossing folder from We R memory keepers. These embossing folders are the bees knees. I mean – how deep are those impressions? I shone a light at the card from above so you could see the detail which comes from this folder and just a plain piece of white card. This particular folder is called ‘woven’ and there are two folders in the package. I am sure I will be using the other folder sometime soon!

After embossing the 6 inch square piece of card, I then die-cut three butterflies from Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bigz die ‘Butterfly Duo’, which also comes with a matching embossing folder. I must say, the hardest part was making sure the two die cut butterflies didn’t move when matched to the embossing folder. If you tape them, then the tape is also embossed onto the butterflies – so carefully does it. Don’t let them slip!

I added them to the base embossed card in a random fashion, as though they were climbing a trellis – again, this is ‘Loopyloo world’ so anything is possible!

The sentiment is a die cut from – I think – Hero Arts. I have lost the main package, so am not really sure. I think the detail and depth of the background also allows the sentiment to show with the shadows.

I shall also be entering this card into he following challenges:
