Sweet Stamps- White on White + One Other Color

Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is to use White on White + one other color.

 This is for a First Communion- and the recipient is ALL Boy!  So, I used Bluebell Coordinations and White and that is it- no pearls, no ribbons...nothing else! 

 I used white embossing powder on Vellum, colored over that with a Copic Marker. The oval die is cut from the vellum and the blue and the white oval was trimmed down and placed behind the vellum. I sponged blue Shades die ink around the edges of the embossed pieces and added the die- there CAS.....



Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Such a lovely card for a first communion. I really like the quilting effect that embossing folder gives. Love the cross image too.
