Encircled in Black and White

Hi!  Thanks so much for the feedback on Monday’s card and for the votes.  I will know next week how I did – so there is still time to vote if you haven’t yet.

Today, I am sharing a card using the Encircled in Friendship stamp set with the gorgeous Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper that you can earn FREE with a $50 purchase (prior to S/H and tax) by Sept 30.

Friendship, Thinking of You, Stampin' Up!, SU! #2021AnnualCatalog, #2021SAB

The Beautifully Penned paper is all Black and White and gorgeous patterns.  You can add a touch of color to this paper in many ways:

For my card, I kept it as is and added a touch of color by using Water Color pencils on the flowers.  I love how this card turned out and used it for my September #makeacardsendacard.   If you aren’t familiar with this, once a month on my Facebook Page I ask folks who could use some happy mail to send me a private message with their address and I’d get one out to them.  I am still working on September’s card design – but if you could use a pick-me-up – let me know!  I’d be happy to add you to my list.

The sentiment is stamped in Jet Black StaZon – same as the flowers.  I used the Layering Circle dies to die cut the sentiment and the Basic Black mat.

The base is Thick Basic White – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  The designer series paper measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Basic White is used for the coordinating stamped layer – I did die cut before stamping and used the die to align the stamp in my Stamparatus and then rotated the die cut 4 times to stamp the flower image.

The Matte Black Dots were the perfect touch to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card!

Thanks for stopping by!
