White on White, Texture & Night Sky

This kind of worked out well because my work colleague has just told us he’s getting married in a couple of weeks (after being engaged for MANY years!) so I needed a wedding card and white on white is kind of traditional so I had a couple of ideas for this.

I have a stencil with stars on so figured that covered the night sky part of the challenge and I knew I wanted to use it with some sort of texture paste and this would be my background. I only had a couple options for ‘white’ texture paste ; some Nuvo embellishment mousse in a mother-of-pearl colour and some Cosmic Shimmer luna paste which I decided to go for as it was not as dimensional and has a really pretty finish. So I used a scraper (this is for wall filler but does the job and is a lot cheaper than any ‘crafty’ spreader!)

So it looks quite silvery in the picture but I can assure you it’s white with sparkly bits in so I’m having this as white on white!

I cleaned the stencil and spreader straight away because it’s a whole effort getting this stuff off once it dries.

Once the panel was dry I used a stitched rectangle die to trim it down and then stuck it onto a plain white card base measuring 5 and half by 4 and a quarter inches.

I initially was going to just die cut a sentiment and use that as the focal point but it seemed a bit bare when I did that – even with the sparkly background. I decided to cut out two hearts using a small concord & 9th die which cuts the heart with a ‘quilted’ pattern and a thin frame for it. I cut one heart from white glitter card and the other from some white shimmer/pearlescent card.

I stuck the hearts onto the background using foam tape and then swapped the thin frames around and glued them down flat.

I chose a small ‘Celebrate’ die and cut this out of plain white cardstock a couple of times then out of the shimmer cardstock and glued these together for some dimension. I then glued this onto the card just underneath the hearts.

I was going to finish it here but then decided to add some mini iridescent heart sequins – this is bit of a cheat because the sequins capture different colours on them so I thought that was a way to get more out of the ‘white on white’ theme.

I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card from a Lawn Fawn stamp set and added another couple of pictures on the inside too.

I like how this turned out and it shows you don’t need loads of colours to make a card that stands out.
