Nuances in white

Starting on this card in white on white, I realized that white isn't just one colour, there are numerous nuances of white. And I realized that Letraset Cartridge papers aren't white-white, like Daler-Rowneys are, they're more yellowish-white. And, as I sat there with lots of white papers around I saw - all these white colours are pretty together, I can use the different shades of white in a card!
So that's what I did - and cutted, embossed, sewed and stamped :)
I hope Passion for ProMarkers will accept it for their "white-on-white" challenge...
Inside the card I used a textstamp from Storyteller, stamped onto panels made with Martha Stewart Punch around the Page, the right side is for writing more personal greetings :)
A close-up of the stampimage, from Sarah Kay. The choirboy closest is stamped and coloured twice, then cut out and attached to the first image with 3D-foampads.
The text is from Ladybug and Friends.

I'll enter this christmascard into these challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers - White on White (though it's different shades of white...)
I Love ProMarkers - Anything Goes (Of course I've used my ProMarkers)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Emboss It (the panel behind the stampimage is embossed)
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Lots of Layers ( I have up to 7 layers in places on this card)
Let's Ink It Up - Stitching (I've sewn around the panels and paperdoilyheart on the frontside)

  2. Jeg er virkelig imponert over at du har inspirasjon til å lage julekort på denne årstiden! Men jeg vet jo av erfaring at det alltid blir blir veldig travelt å lage de like før jul.. ;)
    Så koselig at du har samme kopper. Disse fant jeg i min kjæres barndomshjem da vi gikk gjennom skapene før påske. Syns det er så koselig å ta vare på slike "skatter". Hvis du ser på mønstret i koppene og mønstert i voksduken er det veldig likt egentlig. Det er vel ofte slik at ting "kommer tilbake" :)
    Ha en strålende fin dag på Røst!
    Klem til deg <3

    p.s. I agree with you - until you start looking for white papers you don't realise how different in shade they are!!
