A Black and White Birthday
As much as I enjoy making cards, sometimes I don’t have an hour to devote to one card. That’s why I am so thankful for DCWV boxed card and envelope sets. I was running out of time in October and needed to make a card for a special friend and I was able to make an elegant card in a few minutes.
I stamped a sentiment using a Stampin’ Up! cling stamp and softened the edges with an ink pad and a sponge. I framed it in black cardstock and bumped it out with double-sided foamy mount tape; tied a Close to My Heart ribbon around it and added two pretty paper flowers. Voila! An elegant black and white card to be proud of. Sometimes I feel like I’ve cheated when a card comes together quickly by taking a shortcut. What do you think about using decorative card bases to build your design on?
