Black and White

I really like black and white cards, and I was asked to make a gift set for a group of us to give a friend so I just knew I needed to include a black and white one because Chelsea (the birthday girl) really likes that combo. So, this was the card I made to include in the gift set. I will show the others, after I figure out who I cased for some of them. A few, to save time because I had to get all 10 made in a short amount of time I can claim no credit for. They were CASE's of swaps I received. Some were exact replicas, others there were slight changes. I think there were 3 or 4 of the 10 that were CASE's. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

Stamps: So Many Sayings, Jumbo Outline Alphabet (love it!!!), Short & Sweet
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, unknown 12 x 12 patterned paper
Ink: Basic Black, Tombow gray shadow marker
Accessories: White Taffeta ribbon (SU!), corner rounder punch, 1/8" circle punch


  1. I like how you stamped the word "friend" and filled in the overlapping areas of the letters--cool!

  2. Very nice. I love black and white cards...they look so elegant. Love the scallop and the punch outs in the scallops. All the little details are wonderful.Jane

  3. I love the black and white look. Very clean and yet so beautiful

  4. Marie, I love the black & white! It is always so elegant! Thanks for sharing.Cherie

  5. okay, you just made my decision for me. I have to have jumbo outline alpha. I have been trying to decide to get this one or the new SchoolBook Serif alpha coming out, but this card is awesome! Black and white is just so stunning!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
