Everyday Cards Project No. 004: Blossom Thanks

I love monochromatic cards!  There's just something about the contrast of the black and white that catches my eye every time...

On today's everyday cards project, I created this fun and easy card using black and white inks and card stock.  I also used two types of embossing techniques, dry embossing (embossing folders) and wet embossing (ink and powder). Try them both and see which one you like best.

  • White Daisy Card Stock
  • Black Card Stock
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Bitty Sparkles
  • Damask Embossing Folder
  • Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder
  • Versamark Ink
  • 3-D Foam Tape
  • Tape Runner or Liquid Crystal
  • Close To My Heart Funky Blossom Stamp Set (B1452)
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Scissors
  • Craft Heater  
  • Big Shot or Cuttlebug
Paper Dimensions:

Card Base - 4.25" X 11"

A - 4" X 5.25 
B -  2.5" X 5" 
C - 5/8" X 4"
D - 1.5" X 2" (Frame)
E - Embellishment

  1. Using an 11" X 4.25" White Daisy Card Stock Base, score in center and fold in 
  2. Emboss layer B using Damask embossing folder and Big Shot or Cuttlebug machine. Adhere layer B on top of layer A using a tape runner or Liquid crystal.
  3. Stamp Chevron image on layer C and adhere layer C on top of layer B using 3-D foam tape.
  4. Stamp "May your day..." sentiment on layer D using Versamark ink.  Add Range super fine white embossing powder and heat set with a craft heater.  Adhere on top of layer C 1/2" from the edge of the card base. 
  5. Stamp flower image using black ink pad on white daisy card stock.  Fuzzy cut and adhere on bottom left hand corner of layer B using 3-D foam tape.
  6. Add bitty sparkles on the right hand corner of layer A.
  7. For the card inside, use black card stock and cut at 4" X 5.25" and layer white daisy card stock cut at 3.75" X 5".  Using black ink pad, stamp "Thanks" sentiment on center of inside of card.
