White on White

Craft-Room Challenge # 6 -  DT Card

Hello everyone, it's that time again already (two weeks goes ever so fast)!!!  Challenge No 6 over at Craft-Room, 'White on White', is now open, and the theme has been chosen by lovely Nikki.  For one random lucky winner, there will be a £10 voucher to spend on goodies in the Craft-Room Online Shop - to be in with a chance, just put the shop logo in your side bar with a link back to the shop, and then link up your entry as usual.  You could also be chosen as one of the top 3, so pop over to the challenge and have a look at what the rest of design team have made!

I have to admit, this challenge threw me a little at first, but I am going to a wedding this Friday so I decided to go for a wedding card:

Using white pearlescent card throughout, I decided that embossing was the way for me to go.  I used a swiss dots embossing folder on the top and bottom tiers of the cake and some ribbon around the centre and bottom.  As the bride is having a pearl spray on her cake, I tried to tie this in, so I threaded some beads onto flowersoft wire and used them as a topper.  I also embossed the sides of the card with a cuttlebug border embossing folder, and added a white strip of flower trim on each side.  To finish it off, I did the sentiment (LOTV) in white embossing powder, and attached a circular easel with a wedding ring embellishment.

I hope you like it (and I hope the bride & groom do too, lol!)

I'm going to enter this card into:
