Gold and White on White

Welcome

This card was a commissioned one, and I was inspired a challenge (that I did not enter in the end) of white on white, with just a touch of accent colour.


I embossed the background layer with a sizzex folder, and touched the edges on the surface of a gold delicata ink pad.


I then stamped and embossed the verse in gold, cut it out using a s/b lacy circle die, and sponged the inside edge before removing the die, and then the edge of the die cut itself with the same ink.
  

The birthday sentiment was embossed onto a snippet of paper, which was then trimmed to a tag shape before swiping the edges with gold, and attaching it to the main panel with a wee thread of gold.

The only other addition to the card once it was assembled was some white pearls.
