White on White

I joined a swap recently where the theme was white on white. I have to tell you that I find that to be really hard. My biggest hurdle is that not all whites are created equal. Different brands and different textures of white will vary.

My first order of business was to decide to use one big piece of cardstock to make my card instead of using all those snippets I have lying around. That way I would be sure to have all the same shade of white.
My second order of business was to use Carol's Our Little Inspirations blog to inspire me. Once you check out her card you can see how she inspired my card.  I originally planned for more foliage including paper flowers on my card but the person I ended up sending too prefers uncomplicated cards without too much bulk.

The Fine Print: We were allowed to use any non-black color for the greeting. Carol was right to promote silver.  Greeting and foliage by Stampin' Up, enbossing folders by Cuttlebug and CTMH.

This sure is a pretty card PJ. Very classy and I love the sentiment. Carol L's cards are so gorgeous, no wonder she gave you inspiration.

What a delightful card Princess J - love the simplicity of it, it is quite dramatic with that texture.

I am truly honored to know I inspired you to make this beautiful card! I love the simplicity of wonderful sentiment with a single leaf behind it! White on white becomes easier the more often you do it, and I find that the embossing makes things more visible with all white cards! Thanks for the shout-out! You made my day :)
