It’s that time of the year again. My Favorite Things are having their annual card making contest, the Superstar contest. I wasn’t entirely sure if I had the time or energy to take part this time, but after a week of back pain followed by a week with a nasty cold and cough I simply needed something to do! So here I am with my first project. Hopefully there’ll be at least one more.
White on white is quite common, but I wanted something different. So for my sympathy card I’ve gone with black on black. I think it’s the first time I make a proper black card, actually.
I’ve used the Magnolia Blossoms stamp set. This time I embossed it with clear embossing powder onto black card stock before colouring it up with my Prismacolor Pencils. A STAX stitched rectangle die cut and an essential stitched banner die for the embossed text (from the same set as the flowers, the card kit version), both added with foam tape, gave the card a bit more interest and dimension.
