Shanghai Day and Night

I may or may not have fallen instantly in love with the inspiration photo for the Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge this week.


Seriously, though, you guys!!! Isn't that just a happy place? Clean, beautiful whites, shiny things, and food! What more could you possible need? HA! I was very much drawn to the white on white with just a touch of gold and pale pinks, so, despite knowing the difficulty of photographing white on white cards.... I did it. What can I say? Life is all about the challenges, right? Right. K. Good. Now... my card...

Day and Night


I did mention the difficulty of photographing white on white, right? I promise it is gorgeous in real life. LOL! I stamped the Shanghai skyline from Altenew's Sketchy Cities Abroad stamp set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I really love the detail in this image! I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in gold and then added a strip of pale pink paper from the Shimelle Collection and a small bit of gold washi tape from Little B Designs.

Day and Night (detail)


Before you go, just a reminder that tomorrow will be my TAKE THREE post for my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady position this month! Be sure to stop by because there is some VERY cool stuff coming around here!

Have a Happy!

  6. this is wonderful. The city-scape is hard to see in the photo but I imagine it is breathtaking when you have the card in hand. The rest of the card is clean and simple but very pretty.
    thanks for sharing a unique card.

  8. The card looks great. White on white is my favorite color scheme. It doesn't work with everything but when it does- it's fabulous.

  13. *swoon* So stunning Jingle! For me white-on-white with embossing powder has always been a really hard look to achieve as the whites of the cardstock and embossing powder don't match - but yours looks identical!! Such a super soft and pretty card! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
