My good friend Rebecca kindly reminded me that tomorrow is the last day to submit a black and white card at Stamp n Doodle challenge blog. Thanks, Rebecca! It is handy having a good friend as one of their design team members. :) You know what else is cool about this friendly reminder? The challenge at Cuttlebugmania is also black and white! Woo-who! Great timing between those two challenge blogs!
As I mentioned, the challenge is to only use black and white. I decided to go the clean and simple route and also use a some product I have not used before. First, white card stock was dry embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Instead of running it through as is, I also used Tim Holtz's Embossing Diffuser. I am not sure if you all have used this before but it only embosses within the template chosen. You can see the plate on the photo below. You can do the same with other materials such as a cut rubber mat, too.
The stamp is a Michaels purchase: Stampendous' Merriest Wish wooden stamp. I just love the fonts on the stamp: they are classic and timeless. I finished it off with black card stock to produce a small border, added satin black ribbon and used a Recollections bling on the bow. It was an easy card but it also has a crisp, clean, yet elegant look. (at least I hope!)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one!
