Believe and LOVE

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.
