Winter White on White Wedding

Greetings, Stampers! It's my turn to be hostess this week at The Paper Players, woo hoo! I'm changing things up a bit with a WOW challenge, White on White! After I chose this theme, I thought that it was a little brave of me to do so since I've never, ever made a white on white card before. I'd always admired projects done by other stampers though, and thought it would be a fun challenge and wanted to challenge myself. This is my take on it, a Winter White on White Wedding card.

When I envisioned this card, it had lots of layers and was heavy on embossing. I started with the first layer embossed with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, and then just kept piling it on! The second layer was embossed with the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder, which is retired but currently available on the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack!

When I saw the challenge at The Friday Mashup this week, I thought my project would work well for that too, which is to create a "Winter themed project (Non Christmas)", create a project using "Embossing (Dry or Heat) ", or Mash it Up and create a "Winter Project using Embossing." The inspiration photo had me thinking of a white on white card, too.

To create the wedding dress, I heat embossed using White Embossing Powder on White Vellum Card Stock, then adhered the Vellum to Very Vanilla Card Stock using some liquid Tombo adhesive. I used the same technique for the sentiment below. I don't have any weddings to go to in the near future but when I do, I'm ready with a card!

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Love and Laughter
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, White Vellum
Ink: Versamark
Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Framed Tulips, Desinger Frames and Holiday Frame Embossing Folders, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Modern Label Punch
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Pearls, Vanilla Flower Trim

Won't you join us this week at The Paper Players? We'd love to see your White on White creation too, and it's our final challenge of the year! Come play along!

Inky hugs!

Gorgeous Girl! I am with you White on White! Yikes but everyone did a really beautiful job! I would have never known that you had not done this before! I just had that embossing folder in my hand today thinking... do I want this? will I ever use it? Was not sure I could work with that shape!! BUT OMG I have changed my mind and I am going to get it out of my "gift" pile tomorrow! TFS Great challenge!

White on White for a wedding is my choice for sure! And it fits the bill for a Wintery challenge with embossing in all ways! Love the butterflies fluttering sweet. Thanks for sharing with the Friday Mashup this week.

Holy embossing, Batman! This is amazing, Sandy. I never would have thought to use TWO embossing folders but it is stunning! The texture and the vanilla are soooo elegant. I've always loved this stamp set and embossing on vellum is gorgeous! You really rose to the challenge with this one, my friend!
