Stampin' Up! Greeting Card - White on White

The Late-Night Stampers group's card challenge (131) for this week is to create a Stampin' Up! Greeting Card that is white-on-white.  I created this card for the challenge, and I must say it was difficult to use only white and to create texture and layers that could been seen easily. 

I started the card by dry embossing a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Stampin' Up! Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I highlighted each dot on the edges of the cardstock with the Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint.  Then I dry embossed another piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Stampin' Up! Elegant Lines Embossing Folder and wet embossed the lines with the VersaMarker and Stampin' White Embossing Powder.   I placed Basic Pearls Jewels strategically within the embossed Elegant Lines. 

Using the Bird Builder Punch, I cut out two birds and their wings.  I covered the birds' bodies with White Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink and their wings with Dazzling Diamonds.  I used a pearl for their eyes.  I cut out an oval by using the new Designer Frames Embossing Folder and I wet embossed it with the White Stampin' Embossing Powder.  I attached the very bottom of one of the birds to the oval, leaving the bird raised up.  Using two layers of Stampin' Dimensionals, I attached the oval and bird onto the second layer of Whisper White cardstock. 

I used the Boho Blossoms Punch to create two layered flowers that I covered with the Stampin' Up! Frost White Shimmer Paint and placed a pearl in their centers.  I adhered the flowers onto Stampin' Up! Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon that I wrapped around the cardstock in two places. Then I attached the second bird adjacent to the larger layered flower on the ribbon.  I attached this card layer onto the first layer, aligning the layer within the polka dots. 

That's all, folks!!  You may purchase the items used in this project by clicking on the links (highlights) above.  The links take you directly to the Stampin' Up! on-line ordering process.
