I'd seen this effect on cards before and had thought it must be white embossing powder on coloured card but actually its a brayer and embossing folder technique (Thanks to Monica for the instructions) on whisper white. I love how crisp the Elegant Bouquet looks in white against the perfect plum.
I added a Sentiment from the Something to Celebrate Hostess set on to a die cut tag edged with perfect plum and finished off with a bit of ribbon for a touch of texture.
I don't have any perfect plum designer paper at the moment (terrible oversight I know) so I used some of my stash of retired designer series paper to make a non-matching gift bag :) (thanks to the instructions on Angela's blog) to hold some Stampin' Up! goodies for my friend Margaret's birthday. This time the sentiment is from the Afterthoughts Hostess set stamped onto a decorative label punch out layered onto a sizzix circle and a eyelet border punched strap.
