A few weeks ago I came across a black and white card with a single color accent. It was so appealing to me that it has stayed on my mind. Sometimes an idea just won’t go away, and this one was very persistent. Last night I had time to play with it, and it took me no time to come up with this:
- Vintage Vogue Clear Mount Stamp set
- Basic Black Classic ink pad and Stampin’ Write Journaler
- Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Bashful Blue and So Saffron card stock
- Big Shot and Beautiful Wings Embosslit
- Mini Glue dots
The colors I used with black and white were drawn – literally – from a jar of Beautiful Wings Butterflies I have in my craft room. I never seem to use all the butterflies that embosslit makes, and I can’t bear to throw them away so they collect in a jar.
This card would be very easy to reproduce in quantity, especially if you changed the stamp to a wheel. As it was, I made a dozen of these in about 20 minutes. Each note card is made from a quarter sheet of card stock and is just the right size for a quick thank you or invitation.
