Hello! Welcome to this month’s Inspire Create Share blog hop. 🙂 This month our theme is I am Dreaming of a White Christmas and we’re showcasing ideas using a white on white! We hope you enjoy this beautiful hop and will become inspired to give the white on white look a try!
Now, first up, let me just say that it is SUPER HARD to photograph a whilte on white card and so I’m just going to say, that this looks way prettier in person! But it was fun to play with ideas that didn’t have to use lots of color and supplies. When you go White on White you can focus on a couple details and let the card be elegant in it’s simplicity.
When I knew we were focusing on white, I knew that the best way to get the most bang for your buck is to add texture! This lets your card be really interesting without needing to add lots of colors. I knew I wanted to use the Woodland Embossing Folder, because it is perfect for a snowy wintery scene. I just ran a partial strip through my Big Shot and added my main hint of color by adhering on some of the 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon from the Holiday catalog to the bottom. This is the Sweet Sugarplum ribbon, which struck my fancy more than the silver did. (Love it? You can get it for 40% off while supplies last. Woo hoo!)
And to balance all the stamping and ribbon below the embossed strip, I cut a White Doily in half and adhered it to the TOP of the embossed piece, so you had kind of like snowy mountains balancing it out.
I did all my stamping in Sahara Sand, to keep the ink from looking too heavy. The reindeer and the sentiment are both from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set (don’t miss out! The discounted price on the bundle ends January 3rd, so if you like the die to go with the stamp, get them and save now!)
Well, to pull it all together, just go a little crazy with your Stampin’ Dimensionals! Add some behind the embossed piece, then add more behind the reindeer! More texture and more layering to keep the white from blending together.
Finally, add a few of the Fancy Frost sequins and you are good to go!
(tip – I recommend using glue dots to adhere them to your card)
