Blanc sur la carte blanche!

I've been wanting to create a monochromatic card for a while, but wasn't sure what color I was going to use.   Today I want to share a "white on white" card using only the color white.

The entire card is made from Bazzill white cardstock.

I cut the base to an 8 1/2" x 10" dimension that when folded in half, makes a 4 1/4" x 5" card. 

Using a piece of cardstock cut to 4" x 4 3/4", I embossed with the Couture Creations Magical A2 embossing folder and added some glitter to a few of the leaves.  This was mounted onto the cardstock base.

Next, I die cut and assembled the embellishments, adding Ranger Rock Candy Glitter to the flowers.  I used Robins Nest Dew Drops for the center of the violets.

I layered the Whimsy Circle and Seville Buckle to use as the sentiment base.  The typed sentiment was punched out with an EK Success 1" punch.  The leaves were tucked in behind the sentiment base and the flowers were glued on top above the sentiment.

I love "white on white" cards a lot because they are very elegant. I've been wanting to create one on my own for a while, but haven't gotten around to do it yet. Yours turned out great. Great design and those glitters on the leaves look great. Hugs! xx
