Papertrey Blog Hop #2/ Retro Sketches

Hello.  I love white on white.  Clean and crisp. The Papertrey Blog Hop for December is a "White on White" challenge.
I started with PTI white cardstock and stamped the plaid background with the stripes background stamp set in white ink.  Embossing it with white detail powder.  Then I die cut the shape with a Spellbinders die.  Stamped and embossed the joy from a Martha Stewart stamp set and layered it on the die cut shape.  Then wrapped it with twine.

Mounted it on a white card base with foam dots.

I used the Retro Sketches #43 as my inspiration for the card.

December Blog Hop

Hey all! Hope you had a great Christmas.  So the challenge at Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop was " White on White".  I started thinking about this and thought what would make white on white stand out?  Texture, glitter and dimension?
So I started with scoring lines on the front of the card every 1/4".  Then laid 1/8" score tape in between each line.  I did the first 3 lines with glitter, then white Pearl-Ex and then glitter on the last 3 lines.  I die cut the "blessed" greeting and popped it up with foam tape.  Punched a hole in the glitter layer and tied white satin ribbon through the hole.  Then popped the whole glitter panel up on a white base card.  White cardstock is all Papertrey Ink.

This picture shows the glitter verses the pearl-ex up close.
