For this Cards in Envy Challenge, we are all about the black and white cards for our “Tuxedo” challenge. Create any black and white themed card for your entry. Our challenge runs through Sunday, January, 28th and the design team will be picking their favorites. As a quick reminder, Cards in Envy asks that you make your card fit into a standard A2 card, which is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.
My card today features an older Stampin’ Up image used with a square scalloped punch. The black and white papers are from My Minds Eye and cut with a Lawn Fawn scalloped die. My script stamp is from Impression Obsessions, which I stamped in Hero Arts Shadow ink in soft granite. I edged in white pen, wrapped the focal in black and white twine, and finished with 3 black pearls.
I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us your “Tuxedo” cards.
This months kit is way outside my style, but just goes to show you that it’s still fun! I used the Retro Sketch challenge as a design start and added a piece of vellum because I didn’t want to cover up the “school or book” theme. I’m not thrilled with the embossing powder, which is in Verdigris. The flag is a My Favorite Things die, and the “note paper” die is an old Stampin’ Up punch.
