Another set from this catalog that I LOVE! I’m hooked on using Kraft, Black and White with this set. I think it makes for a very elegant card!
This card was my Control Freaks swap for the New Catalog Swap. I started with a base of Basic Black. Whenever I use a black base, I always include a 1/4 of Whisper White on the inside so I can stamp a greeting. Then I stamped one flower randomly in Basic Black ink. I used my embossing buddy and then Versamark with the large flower, adding White Embossing Powder and heat setting it. I used Itty Bitty Backgrounds to add some black speckles in the blank areas. The designer paper is from Urban Oasis and I was careful to just cut two lines of the spirals. I added a tag cut from Lots of Tags Sizzix Die (LOVE it!) and used the greeting from Really Retro with two black mini brads to secure it to the cardfront. I wrapped the Stripe Organza ribbon around the Kraft piece and layered it onto the Black Base. I was so pleased with this card that I used it at my last workshop! This group was very enterprising, though…I saw lots of awesome variations!
Hope you are having a great weekend!
