White on White Paper Players 176

My!  I love the look of white on white!  It looks very elegant and was so super easy!  No need to worry about matching colors of embellishments with background paper and ink.  It took that worry all away.  Better than a Ativan....that is a nurse joke!

I started with a standard A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).  I used the swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug and ran it through my Big Shot.  I trimmed it down to 3 3/4 x 5.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere it to the card.  The flower dies are the really thick dies from Sizzix.  There are four sizes of flowers on this die.  I use this A LOT!!! because I love it so much.  I cut these out of white chipboard.  I have plain chipboard is black and white.  I purchased these about 2 years ago.  Using my Crop a dile, I attached these star brads into the center.  The leaves were punched out circles of white cardstock.  Then I put those circles in the circle punch again to make them leaf shape.  Using my scoreboard, I scored down the center.  All of these are attached to the embossed background with Glossy Accents.  Because we can use a neutral or metallic accent/sentiment, I pulled out my gold pigment ink pad and used this stamp from Stamps for Life crayons2stamp .  I cut it into the shape of a banner and adhered it with foam tape.  This foam tape was given to me about 6 years ago.  It was huge when I got it.  Very little used.  Now, it's almost gone.  Looks like I will be getting some foam dots really soon.

Thanks to The Paper Players for a wonderful challenge!
