... I think I can be called a LIMette - I keep coming back to the challenge!! This morning I posted two versions of the same card for the White on White challenge that Chrissie and Mandi have set us this week.
But while I was in my craft room I came across a new embossing folder that I got a while ago (last year) and it was still in its packaging. So I decided it was time to play with it. I found some plain white card from my stash and cut it down to make an A6 card. I then placed this in my embossing folder and ran it through my "bug"!! I'm very lucky to have both the Grand Calibur and a Cuttlebug - but I always tend to use my "bug" for small bits of cutting or embossing.
The embossing is really deep on this card - I should, perhaps, have used a slightly thicker card. However, I like the effect and decided to add some shimmer to the whole card. So out came my Cosmic Shimmer mist - pearl white!! It's lovely!! I then decided to make a sentiment to go with the image - out came my Spellbinder dies and Waltzingmouse stamps. I stamped a very subtle background to the sentiment, added the greeting and a white embossed border. The final touch - a charm to go with the theme. So here's the card - and I'm delighted with it!!
I opted for a musical theme - for a "note" card!! Sorry, couldn't resist :)) And I'm really pleased with the photo on this card - you can see the shimmer and the depth of embossing.
