Black & White Leaves

Hi Bloggers,

This card started out very simple but then I just had to go and dress it up a bit.


I stamped a square piece of white card with a leaf from the Creative Expressions Falling Leaves stamp set. I used Jet Black Archival and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto a spare piece of white card again using the Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder.

I cut a frame out of black card using Spellbinders Labels Eight and Lattice Rectangles dies. I mounted the stamped sentiment behind the frame.

I assembled the card but wasn't happy with it so I dressed it up with a length of black crochet ribbon across the width below the sentiment. I added a large bow made from the same ribbon, a Zipper Rose, a couple of Stick Pins and some Eco-Green Glass Glintz.


Hope you like the card.

I'm sharing this card with Make It Monday #72.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
