Papertrey Ink December 2012 Blog Hop

Thanks for coming by to check out my contribution to the Papertrey Ink December 2012 Blog Hop!

This month Nichole Heady challenged everyone to create a White on White card, providing these wonderful inspiration photos. If you didn't come here from Capture the Moment, head over there for details and links to join in the fun.


December-inspiration

The wall of frames in the bottom left corner was the starting point for my card. 




First I created a cardstock and white satin double ruffle ribbon frame - it is a ittle hard to tell in the photo, but this frame is popped up with foam adhesive and sits on top of the embossed base panel.

A Half & Half die cut provides a home for the gold heat embossed sentiment from the Mega Mixed Messages stamp set. This panel is attached to the ribbon frame.

To dress up the card a bit, I went to my stash of pearls, flowers and beads.




I touched a few of the petals with Glossy Accents and poured a little between the pearls and flowers. This is the perfect medium to hold clear beads and Martha Stewart crystal micro beads in place.




There is a little more contrast between the white ribbon & cardstock and the pearls & flowers than I was hoping for, but I still think it is close enough to White on White for the challenge!

My plan is to send this card in a padded envelope for my mother-in-law's 80th birthday next month.

I'm off to hop around and see what everyone else has created.

Thanks for stopping by,


Jacquie
