Papercraft Star 102: White Wedding

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Hey, y'all!  I'm back to share Challenge 102: White Wedding from Papercraft Star!  This week we're looking for white on white wedding cards, and boy, was this a toughie for me!  Ivory is my go-to white.  Plus, it's kinda difficult to add layers with only one color and no shades of it, to boot.  So, I followed my gut and kept it simple.
I started this card by die cutting the leafy branches from white cardstock; adhering them to a 3-3/4"x5" rectangle of white cardstock; machine stitching, with white-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges; and adhering it to the white, cardstock, card face.
I then die cut the banner from white cardstock; stamped it, in Basic Black ink, with the "CONGRATULATIONS to the happy couple" sentiment; and wrapped its right end with a length of white string, which I tied, in a bow, after lacing it through a white button.  It was then adhered, with foam tape, flush with the right side of the card face, to complete the look.
Now, it's your turn!  Here's your inspiration board for this week, if you so choose to use it.
You have until next Monday, June 25, 2012, at 6:00 am EST, to link up your takes, over at the challenge link above, in order to be in the running to win digital sheets from our permanent sponsor, The House Across the Bay.

Jinny, this turned out beautifully, even if it did give you fits to get to the end result. ;) Fab choice of methods to give some dimension and shadowing. White on white *is* tricky to photograph too, but yours looks dynamite!
