Love Believes All

Hello, again! I am on a roll with these black and white cards. Here's yet another one I made for this week's challenge at Joan's Touch.

I created my card base in white card stock. Next, I cut and embossed a background in black card stock using Sue Wilson's California Background die and adhered it to my base. My sentiment, from GKD Stately Flowers 8, was stamped in black ink on white card stock and die cut with Spellbinders 5x7 Detailed Scallops. Once again, before removing it from the die, it was sponged with Memento Gray Flannel ink. Finally, the sentiment panel was popped onto the base with dimensionals.

I love how this card turned out as well....simple but elegant. I hope you enjoyed it too. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

I love this. Absolutely stunning in the black and white and you sponged perfectly around the sentiment area.

All three of these black and white cards have been amazing to look at Olga. Seriously, they are just beautiful, each and every one. I love the shading you did on this one in particular though...and the two different dies work so well together. Outstanding!!

What a beauty, Olga. The dies you use for cutting the borders add a feeling of delicate lightness and visual interest to your card. Love the black and white. Thanks for sharing your talent with us at Sister Act this week. Cathy xx
