White on White! That's the challenge PWC288 this week at Paper Pretties. I love the look of white on white cards, they are so pretty, elegant and often very delicate BUT I do not like to make them so this really was a challenge for me and I have to say that I am glad that I am on the design team because it pushes me to do these challenges that I normally would just skip past. I hope that if this isn't your cup of tea you might be inspired to sit down and make a card too.
Winter is the perfect inspiration for a white on white card. I went hunting through my stash of Paper Pretties stamps looking for snowflakes. I pulled out the "O Christmas Tree, Clear" stamp set which has a couple snowflakes but I ended up just using the sentiment and some other embellies which are all listed in "the deets". I'm not sure if it's considered cheating to use silver embossing powder for the sentiment but I think that if you use white embossing powder or ink even in real life it would be virtually impossible to see, so I think you get to use a color for the sentiment.
I'm sorry my photography skills are not that great, or it just isn't that easy for anyone to make all white show that well, or both. I played around with this photo for a long time and finally decided that this was going to be the best I can do for you so unless you're the person who receives this card this is the best version you will see of it.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "O Christmas Tree - clear"
ink - Versamagic
paper - My Favorite Things "Smooth White" card stock
miscellaneous - Silver embossing powder; Sizzex Tim Holtz "Snow Flurries" embossing Folder; pearls; Stampin' Up slotted punch; ribbon; Martha Stewart snowflake punch; Viva glitter liner Holo Iridescent; the Cat's Pajamas snowflake topper die
