Weekend cards


As a new SU Demo I get to go with my upline to her upline's monthly meeting which is a Shoebox Swap. Not having a lot of bulk colors, I had to go with Basic Black, Ruby Red and Whisper White. I chose my new SU set Playful Petals which has so many possiblities. I made a tri fold card, edged the larger front flap with the new Eyelet punch and made my own patterned paper by stamping the small flower all over the white. I stamped the large flower in black on the Ruby, cut it out and outlined in black marker. The smaller done the same way but accented in Ruby and adhered with a dimensional. With everything cut for 12, I'm all ready for Saturday and Denise loves it! I'm excited!

The 2nd is for SCS' limited supplies challenge for Friday to use only black and white, no colors! I used my Love and Happiness Rub-ons on the white cs, edged the black base with Dots CB border folder and trimmed the card with Dew Drops and black ribbon. Clean and simple!
Thank you for taking the time to look at these and let me know what you think. Blessings to all!

I like both of these. I always like black and white cards, and the red one on top is fabulous.
