Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Black & Silver Card

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is another from the ones made with black card and this one also has a foamiran flowers added to the front.

For the back ground I embossed a separate panel in the flourish fold and then swiped over the top of it with a silver ink pad.

This left a very light dusting of silver ink on all the raised pattern to the panel, and it is an ink pad that I have had for many years.

I added this to the base card with foam tape to give some height. 

From the same black card I used a Fancy Nested shape to cut two layers that have been glued together and these are also added with foam. 

The sentiment is from the set that I bought at the craft show and they can be cut don and used as you like them. 

The flower has been cut from the foam three times, using the Layering Flower dies, and heated to soften the foam with an iron. They can then be rolled into shape, and the stamens pushed through the three layers of the flower.

I have also shaped the leaves the same way and glued them under the actual bloom. The edges to the petals has been lightly dotted with glue and then sprinkled with a fine silver glitter.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
