Warmest Wishes in White

Busy, busy week.... not much time for crafting while I'm working on a couple freelance projects for the next few weeks, but I'm doing my best to keep up with my Saturday challenge commitments. So with that here is my card for this week's fun challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our hostess for the next two weeks is the lovely Liliana Inguanti, and for this week our challenge is to make a white card with a decorative edge. This is what I came up with, using the Mojo Monday sketch.

I wanted to try white-on-white embossing with the Elements of Style flower stamp. It may be hard to see it so here's a close-up:

OK, now can you see it? It probably shows up better in person. I made the frilly bow with white taffeta ribbon and glue dots, accenting the embossed die-cut. I always like to use lots of texture when I'm making a white card, so I embossed the background with the fancy fan and lacy brocade folders - just for fun, on the lacy brocade I put the embossed side down. Next I added a panel with the eyelet border punch (retired) and I cut the card base with one of the border framelit dies. Yes, you can cut both layers of the card at the same time! I accented the scallops with pearls and added the sentiment from Blooming with Kindness, which I stamped in Early Espresso.

This is a great challenge so we hope you'll play along - and check out all the gorgeous ideas the OCC team has for working with white this week!
