Black and White

This week's Hiding in My CraftRoom challange is being sponsered by: Winner receives Digi Stamps


Blue Moon Creation – With Heartfelt Sympathy digi stamp
Cardstock – white for card base, Bazzill Basics black and white for layers, white and black for sentiment.
Foam pads

Card base measures: 6” tall x 5” wide, chomp corners with Crop-A-Dile scallop chomper, outline around edges with black marker.
Black Bazzill Basics layer measures: 5 ½” tall x 4 ¼” wide.
White Bazzill Basics layer measures: 4 ½” tall x 3 3/8” wide.
Wrap tulle around white layer and secure with tape on back, tulle measures 1 ¾” tall, I wrapped it around the back so that it meets in the center back.
Glue ribbon to top and bottom of tulle, also wrapping around the back. I attached the white layer to the black layer with glue.
Print sentiment (I used 4” x 6” paper, the sentiment automatically sized itself for that size paper) and print onto white cardstock. Cut out around sentiment, cut black cardstock a little bigger than the white piece. Put foam pads on back of sentiment layers and place on card face.
Wrap twine around folded edge and tie into a bow.
Attach pearls to the corners of white Bazzill Basics layer.
