- When I think about black and white cards I think about something that is classy, sophisticated, something that stands out. I have some really neat black and white designer paper that I’ve wanted to use and the card shown above what I came up with.
- [town2] I began by deciding what materials I was going to use. Of course, once I got started I found the ribbon I’d selected was too wide for the design and used something else.
- [town3]This is a simple card. I stamped the image, embossed and trimmed the white paper. I then bordered with white polka dots and the solid black paper and set aside. I cut the patterned paper to 4.125” x 5.375” and glued the polka ribbon down the dividing line on the paper. Then I glued the designer paper to the black glossy cardstock base of the card. I positioned off-centered the stamped image layers and attached with pop-dots. Lastly I attached black gems in the upper right hand corner and in the center of each of the flowers.
- I will add a small verse such as ‘happy birthday’, etc., when I decided who I’ll send it to. Don't forget to sign your card on the back.
