I love these white-on-white challenges, but my cards never turn out quite as I envision! I wanted to use some white felt to make snowflakes, but my felt was so soft, the flakes kept tearing apart! I adhered some Adhesive Sheet to the back and that worked better, but I still wasn’t achieving the look I wanted. I finally opted to do ONE snowflake, some snowflake embossing and a bold sentiment:
My upline gifted me with these beautiful Frosted Finishes embellishments, so one went in the center of my snowflake:
and I did a double diecut, one of white, a second of Sahara Sand, and offset them a little to make the sentiment really pop out:
And finally, I stamped the inside, again with Sahara Sand:
I did do another vanilla-on-vanilla card, this time using a technique my friend Billie told me about: stamp on your card; spray a used dryer sheet with adhesive; stick it on your stamped image and cover it with glitter. It’s too bad you can’t get the full “wow” effect of this:
I added a sentiment stamped on a shortened Chalk Talk die:
Believe it or not, this card took about 15 minutes, as opposed to, well, let’s say “MUCH LONGER” for the first one!!!
Hope you are inspired by this lovely photo and will share your creation with us as well. You can see all the beautiful white-on-white cards on Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper!
