Today I'm sharing a card which has the same layout as the Black & White Christmas Card in an earlier post. I had so many lovely comments that I thought I'd use the same layout for the Allsorts Challenge Week 129 - Black and White Plus One.
I've chosen red as my 'plus one'. Here's the card -
I stamped the Tatty Button Tree onto some white card using Jet Black Archival and embossed it with clear powder. I coloured in some of the buttons with Cosmic Shimmer Scarlet Flame Drawing Ink and then cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles dies.
Next I stamped the button poinsettia stamp from the Tatty Button Poinsettias set randomly all over a 7" square piece of white card. I coloured in the buttons on the poinsettias with the Scarlet Flame Drawing Ink.
I put a piece of black card into the Creative Expressions Lattice Embossing Folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.
I assembled these three pieces as shown. Then I ran a piece of Hi-Tack tape along the top and ruffled some Basque Red Vintage Ribbon along it. I then added the whole of the design to an 8" x 8" black card blank.
I made a bow from the Basque Red Vintage Ribbon. I cut 2 sets of the smallest 3 layers from the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias die set in white card. I inked through the die with Black Soot Distress Ink. I assembled the poinsettia and added a red button. I glued it to the bow and added a couple of the Creative Expressions White Pearl Stick Pins.
Finally, I did a bit of fancy faux stitching around the edges of the black card with a white Inkssentials pen.
I'm also sharing this card at Make It Monday #63.
Hope you like the card.
Thanks for stopping by.
