Black and White Simplicity






















Hi everyone!  Thanks for the great support in the blog candy contest.  I love reading all your really fun comments!  How about this card for a simple layered creation for a special friend?  I just love black and white cards, they are so classic, aren't they?  This one uses the new Spellbinders lattice rectangles, elegant posts, grommet tags and label 20 shape dies.  The black corners are part of the elegant posts that I cut the top bit away.  The centre black parts are another elegant post where I have removed the end of the posts and attached it so it hugs around the top and bottom of the label shape.  All the layers have been mounted up with foam pads for dimension.  I added black rhinestones and  some of our frilly edge white organza ribbon and one of the beautiful organza ribbon roses.  I am in love with those roses, they are so elegant, aren't they?  A little FYI too, we are adding new colours to the line and they will be in stock soon!  Just finished the card off with a couple of our white triple pearl pins (cuz I love them!).  If you like your frilly cards like I do, this will be right up your street.  I hope you like it! Let me know what you think?  All for now, Sue x

That is a very pretty card, the lattice rectangles look great on it. I missed out on the hat pins on Create and Craft, so just wondered are they due back in stock soon?
hope so!

This is a beautiful card. Got the crinkled ribbon and I love it. Trying to make roses with it. They are not as good as yours but hopefully practice makes perfect.

It is great to see the Creative Expressions embossing folders and Sam's lovely stamps getting the exposure they deserve alongside the Tim Holtz range on C&C... a match made in heaven!
