Hello, Diana here to share a couple of cards with you. After Terre's gorgeous black and white card last week, I've been inspired to create some of my own. My first card is an in-laid/shaker card. I used Spellbinder's Marvelous Circles and Standard Cicles to frame my sentiment from the If You Don't Believe in Miracles set. I stamped it in black pigment ink and then clear embossed.
For the shaker element, I die-cut the largest Marvelous Circle die out of both silver and white card stock. I then adhered the open white with the silver inlaid inside on clear acetate. To pop up the top layer, I used fun foam around the circle and also the inside circle. It would a waste of a lot of beads not to cover up the center of foam since it wouldn't show! Finally I added a double red bow for a bigger splash of red.
My second card is also black and white with a pop of red. I had just gotten the new LOVE Fill 'er Up stamp sets in the mail so I had to play. And this card is mostly that... just playing. :)
I stamped the letters and embossed them. Then I just doodled with my black ultra fine Sharpie marker different patterns.
Hope you get to play with your crafty stuff too!
