Black-n-White Peony

Hi there... thanks for stopping by.  I have a surprise combination for you with this card project. 

In the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (aka... holiday catalog as I call it), there is a great product suite called Magic In this Night. You should click on that title and check it out, especially if you love Halloween!  Super cool stuff in that suite. 

For me though, my eyes went right to the Magic in This Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I could see right past the Halloween themes and saw the really pretty black-n-white flowers, stripes, and ornate designs.  So that is what I choose as my background paper.  I love how this card came out!

I love black and white cards.  And this one is so simple and elegant.  If you have not seen the Detailed Bands Dies yet, check them out by clicking on the link or look below in the list of products I used to make this card.  The Detailed Bands Dies is one of my most favorite die sets in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Images and words (minus the Happy Birthday) are from a lovely set called Very Versailles. This set is right up my alley... Now the branches of leaves may look like they are not inked well, but they are.  The image is one of Stampin' Up! DistINKtive stamps; stamps made a special way to give a realistic look.  I can't wait to try with other ink colors. 

The Happy Birthday is from the stamp set called Here's a Card.  If you are looking for a "word" stamp set, this may the one you should order

I have to laugh at myself with the inside of the card.  Can you see why? 

As I always say in my classes.... well, it IS handmade!

 

I do want to give credit as I CASED (copy and share everything) this project from a card swap I participated in.  Joanna Jones, fellow demonstrator from Oklahoma, made the below card. My sample, I changed the sentiment and added rhinestones and an inside.  Her card is so pretty so I had to share.
