Day 8 - White on White

I absolutely love white on white cards, I think they are very elegant and appropriate for so many different occasions.  The trick for making successful white on white cards is texture, and lots of it.  The edges of your die cuts, the raised embossing, the ribbons and embellishments will reflect light and cast shadows so that the eye is able to easily discern the various elements.  Although you can also do this with other light colours, white is best because it reflects more light than any other colour or tone.
 

YOUR TURN: Dig out the white cardstock, embossing folders, die cuts and ribbons and create your own white on white card.  Make sure you keep your work area really clean because, as all us Mums know, white gets dirty very easily.

Hallo liebe Beccy, deine Karte sieht fantastisch aus. Ich bin begeistert von der Gestaltung. Das ist eine tolle Inspiration für mich. Gerade gestern habe ich die Spellbinder Schablone bekommen und deine Idee hilft mir wieder ein Stück weiter. Vielen Dank dafür . Ganz liebe Grüße Silvi

Thank you for another inspirational card. I have loaded 2 white cards I made today. They are all white but look grey in the scan. I think that the inside of my printer must be dirty as I cleaned the screen but they still look grey.

I agree with you - white on white looks so special and elegant. The key, as you said, is texture and you have achieved that here - it's spectacular and I love all those die cuts.
