Papertrey Ink Birthday card for blog hop

Hello everyone and a very warm welcome to Sue who is a new follower this week.

Blog-hop-logo


Today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time Nichole challenged us to use black on  project. I love using black on cards because I think it can look really elegant but for some reason I never actually send them out because it doesn't seem to be a celebratory colour somehow. I came up with this card for the hop and I think this one might actually make it to post box!


I used Limitless Layers Ovals to make focal points on the card and used a lovely poppy stamp from Inkylicious which I stamped and embossed in white. I usually end up with specks of white embossing powder showing up when I use black card but I must have done it right this time because it ended up nice and clean. I popped the middle oval up on pop dots to give a little dimension and finished with a sentiment from Heart to Heart #9.

I also made a little bookmark using the same stamp to go in with the card.



Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.

Hugs

  14. Gorgeous combination with the card and bookmark. I especially like how your card uses white embossing powder for the flowers and then you changed it up by using the same image in black for the bookmark, Great job!
