Black And White Of The Day

Today I decided to go with a monochrome theme and made a black and white birthday card. Two colours that I have never combined before. Usually I only used either a white or black card (as base) never both.

But there is always a first time to everything right. At the starting of the project I was quite unsure, feeling that the card will turned out to be dull and boring. Almost switch to another colour.

Black Anda White Handmade Card

But my fingers kept on going. I used the white cardstock as the base. Then I die cut 4 black leafy spirals using my Spellbinders Sapphire and join them up to form a square. Then I stamped some flowers with black ink and this time I hand cut them. I glued the flowers at the middle of each leafy spirals. Then glued white pearl at the center of each flower.

For the sentiment, again I die cut a Happy Birthday greeting and added a white pearl at the top for the added touch.

Monochrome Handmade Card

At the end of my 'monochrome project' I can't deny that I am actually surprised that it turned out not as how I imagined it at first. It doesn't look dull and boring after all.

Since it turned out to be a successful project, I definitely will try making more monochrome cards in future.

Until my next post....always Craft With Love
