Black and White Card

Good Afternoon Ladies,

Former owner, Joan Fricker has a Card Challenge this week on her website and this is the card she made.  Be sure to check out the details and enter your cards in her Challenge by visiting her at: www.joanstouch.com - I will be sending a prize to the Challenge Winner.

Well, I thought Joan's card was so strikingly beautiful and since we have a wedding coming up soon also, I thought I would do a Black and White card too.  I have had a Tattered Lace die that I have been wanting to try and now was the perfect opportunity.

Here is my finished card:
 (Please forgive my lack of photo skills...this makes my card look like it is not matted or cut straight, but I assure you it is.)
I used textured black cardstock for the body of the card and a pearlescent white cardstock to coordinate. The panels are cut from the Spellbinders die S6-005 Elegant Labels 4 (5x7) - so beautiful.
The center focus of course is the Tattered Lace die TTLD169 - Couple.

I absolutely love the intricate detail of this couple.

For the inside of the card I used the same Spellbinders die and stamped it with the Impression Obsession stamp D9125 and embossed it with black Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder  ... I thought the sentiment went perfect with the Couple die.  The black adhesive rhinestone embellishment gave it a little glitz.
On the other side I used the Memory Box die 98470 Blooming Vine and 98310 Prim Poppy cut-outs.  A satin ribbon was inserted in the label from the same Spellbinders die and topped with the Cheery Lynn word die B347 Blessings. (This is a 2 pc.die with 2 sizes of words)

This kind of shows the shimmer of the pearlescent cardstock topped with a white cardstock panel.  I will definitely use this again.  I love the look of it...very elegant.

 Although you cannot see it, I brushed glue on all the little flowers and on the poppies and then brushed on Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl which gave them a subtle shimmer that matched the pearlescent cardstock on the other inside panel.
