Anniversary in Black & White

Here's another card I made for this week's challenge at Joan's Touch. Again, the criteria was to use black and white, scallops and dimension.

The base card was created using black card stock. I added a layer in white, die cut and embossed with Spellbinder's 5x7 Detailed Scallops. Next, on black card stock,  I stamped a sentiment from GKD Elegant Post stamp set in Versamark and embossed it with white EP. This was then cut and embossed with a die from Spellbinder's Elegant Ovals and popped on to my card with dimensionals.

The flower was created using Marianne Creatables Flowers Fantasy die. It was then layered and a drop of black Stickles was added to the center. When dry, the flower was popped on with dimensionals. The leaf branches were cut using  Poppy Stamps Leafy Sprig die, positioned around the flower and adhered to my card.

This completed my project. Thank you for visiting my blog and please stop by often. Until next time, have a wonderful and creative day!

I am proud to share that......

The white overlay is gorgeous - the embossing, stitching and delicate edge really pop. I love all the texture and dimension your embellishments provide. Thanks for visiting 613 Avenue Create.
