Black & White

I'm back again with a sympathy card in black & white. I love Spellbinders dies and sometimes that's all you need to make a fabulously simple card. I used the large and small Fleur De Lis dies for this card with a very good card stock from Gina K. (her link is on my blog favorites) There is a distinct difference with good paper, the cut is crisp and the embossing shows the quality. I used the mirror setting on acetate to print the words and then rubbed them on the card stock. I love that trick especially because I don't have many stamps. This is a bit uneven but I wasn't feeling steady. Martha Stewart score board is great for embossing an outline frame around a card it
adds a finishing detail.

I used the smaller Fleur De Lis die for this birthday card added some  "Gina K" lipstick red card stock for a pop of color. The hounds tooth paper has a sophisticated feel and  I think it could be used for a masculine or feminine birthday greeting.

 Also used on this card: MS photo corner punch, Spellbinders fancy tags, scalloped oval and small oval, cuttlebug embossing folder for the red and black strips. And a little bling with the red rhinestone in the center

That's all for now, I'll be checking out my favorite blogs for inspiration and ideas. Thanks for visiting, Be well:)
