I absolutely love making black and white cards. I can still remember the first black and white stamped card I ever saw since it made such an impression on me.
Black and white cards are so elegant and seem to come together quickly since I am only focused on using the two colours (and some may argue only one colour since white doesn’t count).
And when I think of elegant cards, the Elements of Style stamp set is usually the first set that comes to my mind.
For this card. I stamped the large floral image onto Whisper White cardstock with Basic Black ink and let it dry. Then, I embossed the Finial Press embossing folder over the stamped piece with the Big Shot. Although this card would have looked okay without the embossing, I think the added texture makes the card special.
So what about you? Are you a fan of black and white cards? Please leave a comment and let me know. Thanks!
