Simon Says Stamp’s Flickr challenge #25 is a tricky one. The challenge is to make a card using a white on white style. The guidelines are to use as little color as possible on your project. I discovered that to make a white on white card interesting, you need some kind of texture or dimension.
So, I used an embossing folder to create raised stripes for the background of the front of the card. I die cut each of the flowers three times and glued them together to create a thicker flower for additional dimension. The hello sentiment was die-cut three times as well and glued together for the same reason. The stitched label was die-cut from 60# vellum and used as a base for the sentiment for additional textural interest. The flowers were all die-cut from linen textured cardstock, though the photograph does not pick up this detail as I would have liked.
My only color is the addition of silver sequins which only adds to the tone-on-tone look.
Hope you like the card.
