WOW Card - Using WorldWin Papers for Texture

Hi, it's Gini and I've got a WOW card to share with you today - which simply means a White on White card.  I think the trick to creating an all white card is to use lots of textures - so I pulled out all kinds of WorldWin Papers to give this card lots of visual interest.

I can never decide the best way to photograph these all white cards, so I've given you a couple of different shots.
 Let's talk about the layers.  The base is a 5 x 7 Colormates Smooth Cardstock in Heritage White.  The next layer is Pearlescent Paper in the Swirl pattern.  It was edged with a bead of Fairy Dust Glitter. The next layer was diecut from Petallics Cardstock in Beargrass using Spellbinder's Nobel Rectangle. The center rectangle  was cut using the same die, this time using the Kromekote papers, and embossed using the Spellbinder's M-Bossabilities folder - Butterfly Kisses.  I am completely in love with how spectacular the Kromekote paper embosses. The next layer was die cut using JustRite/Spellbinders Vintage Labels Six dies - using the Swirl Pearlescent paper again.  I added a little bit of the Fairy Dust Glitter to the stenciling areas of the die.  I used the same die set to cut the small oval using Translucent Vellum, that I heat embossed with white powder using JustRite's Fleuriste Newsprint Background Stamp.  The banner was cut from the Kromekote paper using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  The sentiment is from JustRite's Seeds of Summer Clear Stamp set.  It was stamped and heat embossed to seal the ink. The flowers were made using Translucent Vellum and cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations.  Of course, I added glitter to the petals.  The leaves were cut from Spellbinders Foliage using the Swirl paper. Whew! That is a lot of layering, but the results are worth it!
