Embossed in Black and White

 Elements of Style in Black and White


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!

    This is so beautiful. I too love black and white, but never seem to make as many as I would like. I think the embossing really sets off the image. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I LOVE Black and White cards. They are very classy and elegant – like your idea of embossed background as well. I think this Easter Blossoms set is on my “Wish” list.
