This really is LESS!!

The challenge over at Less is More this week is White on White, something I have done a few times, but you know, as well as me, when it is for this challenge its a different 'ball game' so to speak.  I did a card at Christmas - White on White, with an aperture and a snowflake and have thought about doing something similar for a Wedding, so that was the plan - the snowflake card was a tent card - wasn't sure if that was OK for LIM - so just a folded card. Everything went to plan until I thought about embellishments, made flowers - made roses - cut swirls - looked at pearls - but nothing seemed right, so this card really is LESS is More!
I used white hammer card, aperture cut with Nellie Snellen die, then white vellum and used the smaller die for the die cut. I embossed Swiss Dots on the back of the card, so used the 'cut out' from the front for a  greetings label on the back. I embossed CB With Love on the front. The hearts are cut in white pearlised card with a Mariann die and the larger one has another die cut heart attached to the back to hide the silver thread and tape (whoops - said silver - but it is so fine).
I am also entering this card into Tuesday Throwdown- Die cuts
Papertake Weekly - Die cuts/punches

Thats it for now - have a load of ironing to do.
