A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning! A black and white beauty for today's offering. I prepared the background of the card by covering a piece of black card with a sticky adhesive sheet then coating it with Ebony Ice for a pretty bling. To the lower portion of the card, I added a scored white strip. I cut the Delicate Filigree Buckle Bar die twice out of black card. I lined the filigree section with white card before connecting the buckle sections. I attached the border to the card right where the upper and lower portions of the background met and then I tucked the ends around to the back of the card and taped them. I stamped the Alexandra Rosebury Toile stamp in black and cut it out with the Alexandra die. I created a black and white frame using the Grace die and seated it over the stamped sentiment. I attached it to the centre of the decorative stamped die cut to complete the focal element. I also added white flatback pearls as accents to the buckle bar feature. To complete the edge of the card, I paper pierced a white mat, added a thin black mat and a final white mat layer. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.
