You Make Me Happy

The current challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is "White on White." I've never done a card like that, but decided to give it a try.

I decided I wanted to use embossing on my card, so I chose this embossing folder, which also has a coordinating border folder. I also wanted to use a greeting from this set. So I found the following Operation Write Home sketch, which would work perfectly with the stamp/die combination for the greeting:

The die cut panel is slightly smaller than the focal panel in the sketch, but it was close enough to work. I cut a piece of white cardstock for the larger back panel, and embossed it with the main folder, then embossed a 1" strip of cardstock with the border folder. I adhered the pieces to a piece of copy paper I'd cut to 4.25x5.5", just to give me a base to work on. I used a piece of 3/8" white satin ribbon to cover the seam.

I stamped the greeting in Versamark ink onto a piece of white cardstock, then heat embossed it with Ranger Silver embossing powder. I cut it with the coordinating die, and adhered it with foam tape, overlapping the ribbon on the card front panel.

I felt the card was a bit too "heavy" on the right side, so I added another piece of ribbon across the lower part of the card front. Where the 2 ribbon pieces intersected, I added a silver heart mini brad. Finally, I adhered the panel to an A2-size card base.

I'm also entering this in the "Embossing" Lawnscaping challenge.
