White Theme : Wedding Congratulations Card

Hello Monday-Crafters!

I hope you've had a wonderful day today! Today, I'm going to share a card I made inspired by simonsaysstampblog previous challenge which is white-on-white challenge. The difficult part for me is that I'm not really good at white and white... so, I'm challenging  myself to make one. :)  Here it is, a white-on-white theme "Wedding Congratulations Card". You can see the two techniques I've applied on this card in my previous posts : heat embossing and textured embossing. I've added white satin ribbon bow and also heart-shaped brads on the sentiment. Scroll down for close-up photos and a quick tutorial:

What do you think? Is it too plain? Feel free to comment; I would love your opinion and you can share your link if you have made any white-on-white cards. :)

If you would like to make something like this, here's a short tutorial:
  • Card base (White cardstock) - 16.5cm x 12cm (Corner punch the card)
  • (a) Cut a smaller 15.5cm x 11cm piece of white cardstock and emboss it (Corner punch the embossed card)
  • (b) Die-cut a doily paper and heat emboss it
  • (c) Glue the doily paper on textured paper
  • (d) Glue a white satin ribbon strip on top of the paper and a ribbon bow on top of the ribbon strip
  • Glue the assembled (a)-(d) to the card base
  • Cut 2 small rectangular papers; 1 small rectangular and 1 slightly smaller than the first one (I'm using pearlescent paper for the smaller one).
  • Stamp Congratulations
  • Adhere smaller rectangular to the big one
  • Attach 2 cream colour heart-shaped brads
  • Adhere the sentiment with foam pads below the ribbon
