Black & White Floral Card

Spent a fantastic day with a couple of friends last week who spent quite a bit of time teaching me how to stamp properly and I am now an absolute convert.

Managed to finish this card on the day and was so simple. Made a shutter style card in black and then cut lots of bits of white card which were all stamped with 3 different but co-ordinating Stampendous stamps and a Happy Birthday sentiment from a Papermania set of stamps. The bottom panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers folder. It was stamped using Black Stazon and distressed with Rangers Black Soot distress pad.

I am still amazed I managed to make something as good as this.

Did get halfway through another card as well which when I have completed it will post it up here. It is a Mother's Day card using Penny Black hedgehog stamp.

Thanks to Michelle and Corry for their help.

  2. Well done you. You are quite right to feel proud of yourself and well done your friends for their help. There'll be no stopping you now!

    I love that little slither of embossing at the bottom as it tones in so well with the stamping.
