Love Bears All



Good Tuesday morning, everyone! This week's challenge at Joan's Touch called for making a card in black and white, use scallops and add dimension. Here is one card I made for this challenge. A second card will be posted in the next post.

I began by creating my base card in white. I cut a layer in black using a  Sue Wilson's Cordoba die and popped it onto my base with dimensionals. In my next step I stamped my sentiment (from GKD Stately Flowers 8) in black ink. This was then cut and embossed with Spellbinder's 5x7 Detailed Scallops die. Before removing it from the die, I sponged it with Memento Gray Flannel ink and popped in on to my card with dimensionals. As a last step, I cut a leafy corner using Cheery Lynn's Ivy Corner Flourish die and adhered it to my card.

I really love how this card turned out. Black and white is always stunning and elegant. I think this would be a lovely card for a wedding or anniversary.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for stopping by and please sign up to follow my blog to be notified each time I add a new posting.
Makes it a great day today!

Your cards are just SO pretty for this week's challenge. I can't pick a favorite. I love this one because of just how dramatic that center die cut is and the beautiful 1st Corinthians sentiment!
