I have to say, it is nice to have a Friday off from work. This puts me ahead of the game in getting my card done early. Happy 4th of July everyone. I hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend!
This week's Merry Monday's Challenge #115 is to use White on White (sentiment can be in silver). In all the years I have been stamping, I've never made a white on white card, even though I love the look of them! They are always so crisp and clean.
I took a few days to think about what I wanted to do with my card. The layout is what I was envisioning, but not the die cut images.
I started with a 5x5 card cut from Gina K's "Pure White Luxury" card stock. I cut out a Lil' Inkers' "Stitched Circle" from the middle of the card. I then wanted to dry emboss the card base. I thought I would try Spellbinder's "Snowflake" impressibility. It didn't give the deep embossed texture that I am use to, so it didn't photograph very well. I stamped just the word "Joy" from stamp #96944 from Inkadinkado, in Stampin' Up's "White" craft ink and embossed it with a homemade silver embossing powder (I mixed some silver, white and glitter embossing powders together). I used an embossing pen and inked up "to the world" from the Inkadinkado stamp #60-00020, which I also embossed with my homemade embossing powder and trimmed around it and pop dotted it along the J of joy. I die cut out the girl twice from Tim Holtz's "Victorian Carolers" and dry embossed them with a Sizzix "Holly" embossing folder. I pop dotted them to the front of my card.
