Closest Inspection

Hi Bloggers.

A mostly white card from last weeks shows today -

The background is simply a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Compassionate Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. This is not a repeating pattern but you can get away without the join showing too much.

I stamped the dandelion from the Creative Expressions Natures Wonders Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder from the Metallics & Darks Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Butterfly Kiss Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Silver Pearl Lustre Powder. I cut it out with a Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangle - I highly recommend using Wax Paper when cutting this die at least until it has been used a few times.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of White Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon. I pressed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment into the Perfect Medium Pad, sprinkled it with Silver Pearl Lustre Powder, tapped off the excess and heat set it.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Morning Julia, This is stunning, I always love white on white and with the pop of silver embossing, it is gorgeous. I really love stamping then heat embossing, it is so elegant. Thank you for the tip on putting embossing powder on the dazzlers too, would not have thought to try that.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Hi Patricia. It's a Fancy Pearl Embellishment - not a dazzler.
