White on white with a colourful image/greeting combo

I have been wanting to make a card using white on white for quite a while and I decided to try it with this large card for a friend who will be 98 this month!!  I started with a large white card, trimmed another white piece just a bit smaller, cut it into four pieces and embossed each piece using a different embossing folder.  I glued them to my card front leaving a bit of a margin all the way around all the pieces and in between.  I added a piece of green rafia on the left portion using my slot punch to create a bit of an opening on the spine.  I tied it around the card front an double knotted it on the front.  I layered a colour printed image from Vintage Fan Girl  that features poppies with a greeting, trimmed it and layered it with green before adding a white layer.  I adhered this focal element to my card front using 3D foam tape positioning it just over the raffia and covering the joint of the four embossed rectangles.  Really happy with how this one worked out.  I will be using this sketch again for my upcoming classes.      Therese
