Black & White Soiree

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Get ready for another gorgeous card straight from Japan. Today is the second card I received from Junko Morita. This one is black and white with a pop of color--fresh fig, to be exact! This card is so pretty!!

Junko stamped the floral cake image and two leaves from the "Cake Soiree" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. She cut these out with the coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits. She used framelits from the same set to cut out the two-piece cake stand and the swirly element at the top of the card. She stamped a flower from the "Cake Soiree" set in Fresh Fig Ink onto Whisper White and cut it out with its matching Sweet Cake Framelit.

Junko stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment from the same set in Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut it out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits collection.

To build the card, Junko started with a Basic Black Card Stock card base. She embossed a 4" by 5-1/4" Whisper White Card Stock panel with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and adhered this to the card base. She adhered the cake stand and swirly element directly to the card and used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the cake.

Junko cut a length of Black 1/8" Cord and adhered this to the top corner of the card, in a loop. She adhered the sentiment piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. The stamped flower is adhered directly to the card.

The piece de resistance is the pretty 3D flower atop the cake. Juko punched a piece of Fresh Fig Card Stock with the 1-1/8" Scallop Punch and cut it in a spiral. She curled the piece into a flower and adhered it with a Glue Dot. She put a small Basic Pearl in the center of the flower.

Isn't this card amazing?
