I've been doing a bit of experimenting with this one. I love the look of white on white using die cuts so I thought I'd have a go at creating something similar digitally using CAP2. I did a tutorial here to show how to create a white embossed paper look and adapted that. When you do the embossed part it is actually separate to the main paper until you group or merge them together, so at this point you can make the embossed section into an embellishment that you can see through which allows you to add a shadow to 'lift' it from the page. Having created my cut out section I used a solid shape for the middle and another one to make the outer border before grouping them all together. If you make the shape into a punch, it makes it really easy to do. I created the cut out section as a rectangle and used the punch of the shape to cut it out. The punched corners are an embellishment that I turned into a punch in CAP2, and the embossed parts of the paper were done as per the tutorial mentioned above. To finish it off, I embellished with flourishes, flowers and some ribbon and a couple of bows. I'm not sure if the bows are a step too far though - I'd be interested in your opinions.
