After yesterdays silver and Navy Christmas card I thought I should go back to traditional monochrome and the simplicity of black and white. This is still one of my favourite colour combinations (if you can call it a colour at college I was told there was no such thing as Black!)
Today's card started with me cutting the filigree section shape from the Vienna die set by Sue Wilson in black card. I then Cut a piece of coconut white (which is a lovely soft white) card, which I had embossed with the pinpoint embossing folder, into a simple oval shape I added the centre filigree section form the Vienna die in the centre. This was foam mounted above the black die cut and then it was simply dressed. I added a messy bow of black seam binding, A Vintage cameo and some pearl swirls, all from Creative Expressions, round a hand cut banner with the sentiment.
The back of the card is simply the remainder of the sheet that I embossed matted, layered and foam mounted together with black cardstock to create the card.
Finally I added a few (Honest Ita it's just a few!) PVA dots in the corners, in a pearl finish, to give the card some focus.
All in all a simple card to put together with just 2 die cut pieces but the layering and embellishments really make this one I feel.
