Week 10 - Card 1 - Black & White Nostalgia

This card was designed by Jenelle and designed to show the ladies in class something they had not done before. It's always fun to learn new techniques and we try to offer a wide range of different card making techniques. This one had two new techniques in it for many of the ladies. Firstly we used and embossing folder from Provo Craft and a template that Jenelle had made from chipboard. It enabled us to emboss the card front while leaving the middle section blank (unebossed). We then used Labels 13 from Spellbinders to create a frame. Next was the stamping and embossing...something many of the girls had never tried before. The stamp used was from Inkadinkadoo and its called Nostalgia. We simply stamped it with pigment ink and embossed it with super fine black embossing powder from Stamp It.

The flourish is from Quickutz and the flowers were edged with a black Copic marker.
