Simple & Quick Black and White Card

Hello and welcome back! Laurie with you today to share a very quick card. Black and White is today’s theme on the SNS Facebook Page…you should check it out if haven’t already.

I started by creating a 4.25X4.25 inch card base. I had some scrap, black cardstock that I decided to cut into strips. They measure 3/4″. I ended up cutting 2 of each strip and gluing them together to give a little dimension. The florals come from the Fun Flowers Stamps and Dies from MFT. This is a simple and, like the name says, fun little floral set.

Now because the theme is black and white, I didn’t colour the images. I did add a little grey shading though. Before adhering the black strips to the base, I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Love Bugs Stamp Set. I thought it fit the card perfectly.

I adhered the flowers to the card using a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. I added a bit of shine to the flower centres with a glitter pen as well as a few clear sequins.

As an afterthought, I took a black pen and added a sketchy line around the perimeter.

And that’s the finished card! This came together very quickly as there was no colouring involved. This would actually be a great card to mass produce!
