As I was typing the creative design for this card I realized this might be the first card in a long time that I haven't embellished with brads, buttons, rhinestones, gems or pearls! Hang on while I go check my temperature, LOL! The layout I used for this card is one I seem to come back to time and time again! Something about it's simplicity and elegance appeals to me. Whatever it is, I always love the cards I create using it!
Today's card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Pink Passion cardstock then a 2 1/2 strip of Black Divine patterned paper. The image was stamped in Pink Passion on PTI White using the Garden Silhouettes stamp set. I paper pierced the edges before layering on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock and attaching to the card base with mounting tape. To embellish the card I wrapped White Ribbon around the card base and tied a knot in front.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
