I was inspired to make this card after a friend shared a card she made that was white on white.
I had just received my Bloomin Heart Thinlits dies and just couldn’t stop playing with it! (It is a little bit additive, especially when used with the new Precision Plate and Big Shot Die Brush!)
White on White, or any monochromatic project can be a little tricky but it doesn’t have to be dull! One of the best tips to keep in mind when working white on white (or color on color) is that since you don’t have colors, you need to work with layers and texture and dimension. Who needs lots of color when you’ve got all that going for you?
Notice all the layers? First is my Whisper White card base. Then comes another, smaller layer of Whisper White that was embossed with the Gently Falling TIEF. A little strip of Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum, stamped with a sentiment in Silver, is wrapped around this layer prior to adhering this to the card base. (Even this vellum is white on white!) This tiny bit of silver ink is the only ‘color’ on the entire card!
Now for the focal point! I cut out a heart from Whisper White cardstock using the Bloomin’ Heart thinlits and several flowers as well. The Big Shot die brush makes easy work of getting all those little pieces out of the intricate design. Stampin’ Dimensionals strategically placed behind the 5 flower areas prop this heart up from the embossed background. Next I curled the flowers and using pieces of dimensionals, adhered the flowers to the flower spaces. On the 2 larger flowers, I added a smaller flower on top of the larger flower. Each flower was then topped with a Pearl. Lastly, a piece of Organza ribbon was adhered on top of the heart for yet more texture & dimension.You can see the layers and dimensions in this view.
While I originally made this card as a Congrats on your Engagement, I thought it looked more ‘bridal’ and decided to use it as a Congrats on getting married instead! My Rose Wonder bundle was on it’s way, so I waited, then added the sentiment “Wishing you a marriage made in heaven and a lifetime blessed by God” to the inside.
