Winter White

Just scroll down if you're looking for my DeNami Blog Hop post.  It's been awhile since I got a card entered for ODBDSLC.  I love all white cards--photographing them, however, is another story!  Anyway, I took this opportunity to use my newest ODBD stamp set--Bird & Butterfly Labels--which coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 18.  I white embossed the image & embossed the outer edge of the die.  Then I spritzed it with my favorite shimmer product--Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz Frost.  Unfortunately, you can't see it in the photo.  The stamped piece is mounted with foam tape to the next size up vellum die cut.  The 3 flags are a variety of white cardstocks cut with MFT dies.  I used to think you couldn't combine shades of white until I saw an actress in a movie a few years ago wearing a white blouse & an off-white sweater & I loved the look.  (At least my creative side is open to new ideas as I get older--LOL!)  The sentiment is from ODBD Sweet William set & is stamped in VersaFine Smokey Gray.  Thanks for coming by.
