I have been seeing some beautiful white on white cards lately, but hadn't tried one myself yet. I finally found myself with a perfect opportunity. This is a 3x3 card that I made for an embossing theme swap that I am in on Splitcoaststampers.
The requirements of the swap were to have either heat embossing or dry embossing on the card. Embossing with Cuttlebug folders was also allowed. My card has both types of embossing. The image and sentiment are heat embossed in white and the background was created with the Textile Cuttlebug folder. I cut all my pieces with my square Nestabilities. Everything was mounted on the large scalloped square, which was then placed on top of the 3x3 card base.
My white on white is actually cream on cream. I didn't think the image showed up well enough on white so I used cream to give it a little bit of contrast. The colors are not really true to life in the picture. Because the scanner lightens the items it's scanning, the image and sentiment were almost invisible. I adjusted the brightness and contrast to help that out, which resulted in the overall color being a little off. I really need to learn how to take decent phots of my cards because I know that would eliminate those types of problems. I really do try, but pretty much always scanning works better for me. Maybe someday I'll get it. :)
