Silver and White Love

Color Hues #33-Silver and White

Doing a card in silver and white has been on my mind since Monday and I had several ideas on the go. Of course as I began things evolved a whole lot differently than what was in my head and I ended up making two cards that work for the challenge. The other one will follow this post later. I had initially cut out some small stitched hearts in silver and white from a set by Memory box, but they looked a bit blah so I had to think a little bit. Having a roll of silver plumbers tape on my desk I had the bright idea of adding it to some CS and either embossing it or die cutting. I opted for die cutting and used the panel die by Tattered Lace for this. Once it was cut I added it to some white sparkly CS from LawnFawn. (note to self – need to buy more). Using a metallic silver CS I cut two card bases and added this panel to the front of one. Then I added a white heart with a silver one offset on top to the side of the panel. The word die is from MFT and is called Loopy Love and as you can see I used black CS to cut it. The embellishments are Studio Katia iridescent bubbles and I found them when cleaning a drawer and they work perfectly for this card. As you know I am fond of elegant looking cards so I’m happy with this one.

    1. I’ve seen several tutorials on using plumbers tape for embossing but I decided on die cutting and it worked well although a challenge to get it out of the die without breaking it.
