White on White card

I have seen a couple beautiful white on white cards recently (Darlene Pavelick and Diane Hover), so I thought I would make one.  I always struggle photographing white cards, so I hope you can see this okay.
I am going to enter this is the Sisterhood of Crafters just for the fun of it.  Why don't you join me?


I started with a Cuttlebug Cut and Embossing folder of which the name and number is no where to be found.    I  added 4 corner dies by Cheery Lynn on the corners and a strip die from the Cheery Lynn  Border Strip B215 dies on the left edge to fill in some blank space. I was so pleased how deep the embossing is and how well it cut out the center.
The Sparkle & Sprinkle Sunflower 643  was stamped on Vellum with Versa Mark Ink, embossed with White Embossing Powder and then painted with Pearl Adirodack Metallic Paint.  I fussy cut it out so I could use it in the center of the opening.

                This view of the card is laying down, which I thought gives a better idea of the dimension.

This is the inside of the card.  A strip of white was embossed with the Swiss dot embossing folder and the flower was popped up on it.  I felt it was too plain, so the Nellies Nest Frame 1 HSF005 was embossed and hand cut out in the middle to allow the flower to pop up and placed over the Swiss Dot Strip.
