Feeling Blue?

Hello Everyone!

Today I would like to share a card with you:

This card was really difficult to photograph as the light kept bouncing back at the camera due to the white embossing!
To create my card I took a couple of pieces of white card - one piece I inked all over using Chipped Sapphire distress ink.  The other piece I covered with a variety of stamps from Chocolate Baroque, I used perfect medium to stamp them and then embossed with Stampendous white detail powder.  I then inked up this card with distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and a touch of Chipped Sapphire around the edges.  I then cut this piece into three sections and mounted them onto the first piece of card.  I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from a Paperartsy JOFY set and added the two little pearls before finally adding to a card blank.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

  1. A beautiful card Claire. As you say, the photo doesn't show up the detail well and I struggled to find the happy Birthday. Very carefully and beautifully executed. Well done. X

  2. Wow - great detailed embossing xx

  3. This is stunning! I love the depth you have achieved on those panels and the way the white just pops. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

  10. Lovely card with great embossing.

  11. I love the colour on this and the lovely contrast with the white embossing.. I wish I knew a way to prevent that reflection problem with shiny things like embossing and acetate; it does make photography so very difficult, doesn't it? Julie Ann xx

  12. I had the same problem the other day photographing my card with white embossing on it. Your card came out beautiful though! We so appreciate you playing along with us over at Just Us Girls. Hope to see you again!

  13. Gorgeus card Claire, the white embossing looks amazing!
