Cream, White and Black ...

Hi Everybody,

The theme for these cards is keeping things simple and just using three neutral colours.

Cream, White and  Black are all that I have used and I have embossed each of the panels for effect.

The flowers are one of the Die D-Lites from Spellbinders  and this one is the Asters and Poppies.

The sentiment has been added to one of the Fancy Tags 3 and I have cut it twice and added the black one to the back for a shadow effect.

All the panels have been added with foam pads and the ribbon is a double one with White Organza and some Grosgrain with little flowers in the weave.

The button is one that  I removed from a cardigan when the garment was thrown away ... I knew it would come in handy one day!!!

This card uses  Bluebells and Lily of the Valley and is another of the smaller Die D-Lites.... and they have been added to the Filigree Vase.

I have matted to the white base card  Enchanted Labels 28 and this is a big die.

The cream centre part is Labels 30 which I have embossed

The white Organza ribbon is wrapped around the card  and the pewter button is another from my button jar.

All have been matted and layered onto white and black and black pearls added in the top right corner.

Then last but not least  is this one.

For this I have used  the Gilded Gate 2 and I have cut the whole lot from White card .... and then chopped off the gates and used them as a grid.

They have been matted and layered onto alternate white and black panels and the white one has been embossed.

I have added in some "Bling"  from Want2Scrap on this card and I quite like the finished look of them all.
