Good Morning Everyone

Once again thank you all for your lovely comments on my previous blog.

After a very hectic week I decided to do a straightforward card for today's blog......

8 x 8 card in the ever popular black and white.

Products used: (which are linked to items on Phill's Website too) :-)

White Card Blanks
White Card Stock
Black Card Stock
Sentimentally Yours Lacy Ovals & Borders
Sue Wilson Daisy Dies Complete Petals
Sue Wilson Daisy Dies Open Petals
Sue Wilson Heart Lattice Embossing Folder
Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Petite Vinery
Sue Wilson Austria Collection Salzburg
Black Soot Distress Ink
Elegant Milestone Birthdays A5 Stamp Set

 Starting with an 8 x 8 White Card Blank

I then did the matting and layering

1st layer Black card cut to 7.75 x 7.75

2nd layer White card cut to 7.5 x 7.5

3rd layer Black card cut to 1.75 x 7.75

4th layer White card cut to 1.5 7.5
Taking the white 7.5 x 7.5 card I embossed this then attached both this and the black card to the main card.

Using the Border Stamp I stamped down both sides of White Panel and attached this to the Black Panel and then attached both down the centre of the card.

Next using the Oval Stamp I stamped this and then cut it out and attached to card.

Using the Die I then cut this out ready for the Sentiment.

Using the 60th Birthday from the Elegant Milestone Birthday
Stamp Set I stamped this using Black Soot Distress Ink.
Then attached to centre of card.

Finally I used the Daisy Dies and Vinery Dies to create  the flowers, then added small Dazzlers to the centres.

                   Happy Crafting........
