White on White – Peaceful Poppies. This is one of those cards that I have been meaning to make for a while. The project is what I would call ‘fiddly’ rather than difficult, and I think the biggest challenge has been to take any half decent photos of it! I have used both the Peaceful Poppies and Peaceful Moments Bundles on this card, which I know is a little extravagant, but sometimes these things just have to be done.
Most of the stamping has been in Versamark so I could heat emboss with white embossing powder. The only coloured stamping is for the sentiment on the inside. Because the stamping has also been on Vellum, you do need to be a little cautious when you come to heat the powder; it melts much faster on Vellum, so do watch it carefully.
The only hint of colour on the front of the card is a narrow ‘frame’ made using dies from both Bundles. You do need to be a little careful when you do this as there is only the smallest margin between the two dies.
I did add a piece of Whisper White behind all the vellum, punched with the Label Me Fancy punch, to act as a support for everything else. Adding adhesive to vellum can be a challenge as it often shows through. Using liquid adhesive behind the heat embossing helps to hide this from the front.
I really hope I managed to capture the delicacy of this card for you. It may well be easier to see on the video, so if you haven’t already had a look a that, why not take a look now.
