Paper Players 370 - Design Team Card

LeAnne's Holiday Pines challenge last week gave us so many beautiful cards - I was gobsmacked and choosing just one to be Cut Above kept me deliberating for quite a bit of Saturday morning. So, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with Nance's interesting colour challenge: white on white.

An interesting challenge, where I think texture will play a greater role than usual. Here's what I came up with.

The Petal Burst embossing folder makes up the background, while on a plain white banner some die cuts from Colourful Seasons take centre stage. 

The sentiment caused a couple of headaches. White on white just didn't seem to work with words, although I did consider embossing white on vellum. In the end, I decided that a limited use of a neutral is usually acceptable in a colour challenge, at least for outlines and sentiments. So I went with that and used silver embossing, in keeping with the cool, white theme.

We'd love to have you join us this week at The Paper Players. There's just a few things to remember, if you do:
  1. Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, total. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
  5. Have fun!
