Brightest Glow for #jai626

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's all white card is inspired by the Sketch Challenge over @ Just Add Ink Challenge.  Please click the hyperlink or the image below to visit their blog and enjoy the inspiration.

I love layers, but I struggle with layering coloured patterns so I decided an all white, embossed card might be a good challenge for me.   The one embossing folder is retired, but I chose it becasue the embossed pattern was smaller than the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder.  Is that the rule when mixing patterns, vary size?  I'd love to learn the design rules about mixing pattern, so please pass along your advice in the comments below. 

Assembly & Trix,

*  Emboss a 2 1/4 x 4 1/8 piece of Basic White cardstock with the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder, #155433 and adhere it to a 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 piece of Basic White Cardstock.

*  Emboss and die cut a square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, #159183 then adhere with glue.  The retired embossing folder I used is called Winter Snow, #153577.  **The Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder, #156392 might be very lovely too :)  

*  Create the deer using the Deer Builder Punch, #156390 with Gold Foil Sheets, #132622 and adhere with dimensionals. 

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set, #159542 and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder, #155555.  Die cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies.  Adhere with dimensionals.  ***Trix, to minimize bulk on the card, only add dimensionals to the left side and bottom of the circle, the top right side of the circle will lay over the square.

*  Tie a piece of Simply Elegant Trim, #155766 to the card layer.  ***Trix, add a strip of Stampin' Seal to the back of the card layer to hold the gold twine in place, tie a bow on the front adding a glue dot to hold the bow in place.  

*  Adhere the card layer to the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with dimensionals.  Embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963

  1. A really lovely card - a great way to use a minimalistic colour palette.

    I'm not sure of any rules for putting patterns together but just do what I feel is pleasing to the eye.

    1. Thank you Chantell, I appreciate the advice, I'm always so inspired by my friends who seem to just know 'how' to make some patterns work so beautifully together.
      Thanks for the terrific challenges!

  2. This is such an elegant design Lesley! I love your white on white patterns that really anchor the gold deer. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

    1. Thanks so very much Jan for your lovely compliment!
      I love the challenges, thanks for the inspiration :)


Thanks for taking the time to write a comment, you've made my day!
