White on White Focal Point

The Altenew June Inspiration photo made me think immediately of weddings, and since they're asking for a white-on-white focal point also, I wanted to throw my hand in.  I decided that I'd use vellum that is white embossed, and that's how this started.

Altenew June Inspiration

supplies: cream cardstock and vellum, Altenew Beautiful Day (flowers) and Garden Treasure (leaves) stamps, sentiment from a retired The Craft's Meow set called Side by Side, Wplus9 silver ink, Zig markers, (light carmine, wine red, yellow, and light green), Sizzix Ornate Frame embossing folder, adhesive foam squares

I clear stamped, embossed in white, colored them with Zig markers, and fussy cut the flowers, leaves, and sprays from vellum.  While they were drying I dry-embossed the panel and stamped my sentiment.  Then I trimmed the leaves and sprays to look like they were behind the large flower, and affixed them to the embossed panel only at their bases, allowing the outer parts of each to stand away a bit from the base. The big flower has a 2nd layer - if you look really close you can see the foam adhesive, but I don't think it's very obvious, and I wanted it to stand up above the main flower.  This main panel is also popped above the card base.

Here's the inspiration photo:
