Before we get started, I want to remind you about the awesome Perennial Birthday Project Kit in the Occasions catalog. You get supplies to make 16 cards and a beautiful box to hold them in. I'd love to bring the stamp set and inks to your house so that you and your guests can put together this wonderful kit. Please contact me soon to schedule your event!
Once you've made all the kit cards, you can come back to my blog to make these stunning black and white cards! Today's card is no exception!
We started with a Whisper White Card Stock card base, scored, as usual at 4-1/4". The front of the card is scored at 2-1/8" and folded back on itself.
We stamped a sentiment and a floral sprig in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White oval cut with a Layering Oval Framelit. We adhered that to a Basic Black scalloped oval cut with another Layering Oval Framelit.
We used the 1/2" Circle Punch to punch a hole on the folded edge of the flap (not shown). We threaded a length of 1/4" Whisper White Organza Ribbon through the hole and around the top flap, tying it into a knot. Then we adhered the left side of the oval to the card, on top of the ribbon, with two Stampin' Dimensionals. We added two 1/4" by 2-1/8" strips of Basic Black Card Stock to the bottom of the flap.
On the inside-facing part of the flap, we adhered another 1/4" by 2-1/8" strip of Basic Black Card Stock. And on the inside of the card (which is seen when the card is closed--and opened) we adhered a 5-1/2" by 2" strip of Petal Passion DSP.
This card is quick and easy, but the fancy fold and extra touches make it a special card to celebrate YOU!
