Silver Love

Hi, again!  This is my third post today, but the linky at CASology is closing and I want to link my card to that challenge.

I just had to make a card for this week's challenge at Less Is More - white on white is such a hard challenge, but so beautiful!  I went for a love card and am also linking it to the current Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, CAS on Sunday and AAA Cards - the latter two both have love/Valentine themed challenges.  For Tic-Tac-Toe I'm using the top row - Love, Shimmer and Hearts.


It's hard to see in the photo, but I've white embossed cascading hearts all down the front panel of this card.  You can see them slightly better in the close-up photo below.  I adhered two strips of silver glimmer paper down each side of the panel then used craft foam as a backing and mounted it onto a white card base.  I also adhered some white cardstock to some craft foam before die-cutting the sentiment.


It's so hard to photograph white-on-white card, but trust me when I say this is much prettier IRL :)

Thanks for visiting.  It's back to work for me tomorrow, but at least it's a short week!  It's been so nice having a long weekend.

A beautiful card Karren! These white on white cards are so difficult to photograph... but you did a great job and I can just picture this IRL!

Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Beautiful card card, love this white on white. You have caught the look beautifully in the close up photo so we can see the embossed hearts. The strip of silver finishes it off perfectly.

This is beautiful Karren! So elegantly composed - love that double strip of glitter down either side, and those white embossed hearts add such a gorgeous texture. I am a BIG fan of white on white, and the touch of glitter just makes it more of a celebration! SO glad you could join us at CASology this week!

This gorgeous card makes my CAS-loving heart sigh one big happy sigh. I LOVE it! Love how you've added texture with the embossed hearts and glitter, but still maintained so much white space. Just beautiful! Thanks so much for joining us at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!
