Sweet Stamps Challenge 29 - White on White

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is....

White on White

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.


I used to be intimidated by this type of a challenge until I realized just how simple they can be.  It is OK to use color on the image so all you have to do is make a white card.  For me that means lots of layers and embossing.  I die cut my card base using the largest of my Cheery Lynn Designs Scalloped Circle Stackers Nesting dies; the other 2 scalloped circles were die cut using smaller dies from the same set.  Then using the coordinating Silver Circle Stackers I added embossed circles using Cheery Lynn Designs XL Embossing Plates, Eccentric Circles and  Diamonds and Starbucks.  The last step was stamping this great Wreath from Sweet Stamps, coloring it with Copics and adding a few red Viva Decor Pearl drops. 


I used Foam Dots between the layers for lots of dimension on the card.  Finished size is 5 5/8 inches round.
Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

I absolutely love the card. I'm extremely new to card making and have a question. How did you make a round card? I know how to make regular card and would LOVE to learn this trick. Thank you.
