Black & Cream - Many Happy Returns

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you all for your lovely messages and comments on my previous post, its nice to know you are enjoying the blog:-

Today's card is another small one :-

All the products used to create this are available on Phill's Website 


This is what I used :-

Cream Card Stock
Black Card Stock
Baroque Frame A6 Stamp Set
Mini Baroque Everyday Sentiment Stamps
Black Soot Distress Ink
Sue Wilson Noble Dies - Ornate Pierced Rectangles
Sue Wilson Camellia Open Petals
Sue Wilson Camellia Complete Petals
Creative Expressions Cream Pearl Strips
Cosmic Shimmer Glue

This is what I did :-

First I cut the card shape using Cream Card Stock and the largest of the dies, then cut another piece out and attached to the card blank.

Using the 2nd and 3rd largest dies I cut these out using Black Card and layered it onto cream card.

I then attached this to the main card using pads to give dimension.

Using the smallest pierced die I cut out in cream card to stamp the border. For this I used the Baroque Frame Stamp and Black Soot Distress Ink.
Then attached flat to the card.

Sentiment & Flowers

I cut a piece of Cream Card to 3.25 x 2.25 and chose a stamp from the Mini Baroque Everyday Sentiment Stamp Set, and used Black Soot Distress Ink.

This was then attached to the card using pads to give dimension.

To create the flowers I cut an assortment of these both in cream and black using offcuts of card.

I then shaped and assembled them and attached to card.

Finishing Touches

Finally I added cream pearls around the outer edge of the card and also to the centre of the flowers.
