Keep it Simple - all is white!

My sweet friend Barb is the October guest designer for Keep it Simple!, and I had to play along - this challenge is new to me :)  Since I'd just made my previous card for the Flourishes challenge, I had crocheted mats on the brain & used one here too:


Supplies: Stamps all from PTI; Versamark; Stampendous white detail EP; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Memento Gray Flannel ink; classic small & lacy oval Nesties; white mulberry paper; crocheted mat by me


After stamping & embossing the pretty damask label, I cut out around it, leaving a small border around the edge. I was really liking the different textures, and wanted just one more layer - lucky there was a piece of white mulberry paper in my stash. White on white cards are so hard to photograph (and uh, keep clean, if you're "inky fumble fingers" when you work like I am!) but so, so elegant!

There are still 2 days left to play in Keep it Simple's All is White challenge - come on, you know you wanna :)

xoxo,
Jessi

I'll agree with you on the photographing of white cards - but this one looks yummy! So pretty with that embossing on it and of course love the crochet frame work.

Definitely elegant, and definitely gorgeous textures! And I do hear you on how hard it is to photograph all white (or mostly black) cards.

Stunning! Just stunning! I do so like the oval shape and the glossy white on white stamping. Truly beautiful -- oh, did I mention it is stunning?
