White on White

White on white is something I've never tried before. I don't know why not, because I really like the look of it. Anyway, it's the theme for Week 14 of Less is More. Two days in to the challenge and there are already lots of stunning entries, so on with the thinking cap!

White on white is all about texture, so it could have been tempting to go a bit overboard with it, but bearing in mind the clean and simple nature of LIM, this is what I came up with.

I dry-embossed the iris (American Traditional Stencils) and created a frame for it from two Nesties. Part embossed the base card with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, scored two lines below that with my Scor-Pal, attached a Nestie label with sheer white ribbon, and added a peel-off greeting.

I was reasonably pleased with the result, and it's whetted my appetite for more WoW, so if I get time there may be another entry forthcoming!

I've gained a couple of new followers this weekend, so hello and welcome to them, and thanks to everyone who looks at my blog, and for all your lovely comments. I do appreciate them all.

WoW! is the perfect exclamation for this gorgeous card Lynn. The iris stencil is truly beautiful and the frame you have made from the two Nesties is the perfect compliment, An absolutely stunning entry to the challenge.

This is beautiful Lynne, it really is WoW!
The iris looks beautiful, did you do this with a light box and a brass stencil?
Lovely frame and everything else, I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
Thanks so much for joining us yet again.

White on white is always gorgeous but it's very difficult to create something elegant and chic. And you did this so well. There is a classic touch in this card that I just love. This is breatthaking; the embossed iris almost looks fragile; such a fabulous job. And how cretive to use two nesties to create a frame!

This is a beautiful card Lynne. I love the flower image. I thought about trying but I think it would be really very difficult for me. But I may still have a go though probably not in time for this challenge.

The white on white is a great look, Lynne and you've perfected it with this. What a classy card. I love the dry embossing. You don't see that much nowadays do you with all the machines out there. I love your Nestie frame too.
