Black and White Wedding Card for the Adventurer

Black & White Wedding Card
By: Michael A. Trent, Artistic Guide 

Finished card size: 9.25” x 3.875” 

When I first saw that this month’s edition was working with “black & white” I jumped for joy.  As much as I love color, working with just black & white papers, images, and inks can be so classy and easy.  This is a very classy and easy wedding card perfect for the beginner or fast for the more advanced stamper.
