I have so been enjoying the challenges on a private group on Face Book through Fun Stampers Journey. This week's challenge was to make a card that fits a 4 1/8" x 9 1/2" envelope. I got out my white and black card stocks along with the Feb. special from FSJ of 12" x 12" black/white double sided papers, oval dies, and a couple of stamp sets and I was off and running.
I love the elegance of black and white cards and I love how this card turned out. And it took less than 1/2 hour from conception to completion! I used the "Damask Print" stamp which is $7.95 and a phrase from the "Sentimental Prints" set (10 stamps for $19.95).
I wanted to show a close up of the Oval dies. I put 2 together, the actual oval cut and the dotted edged. This combination works well with the dotted paper.
I raised the banner with double foam. I had to double score the ends of the banner to make this work. I guess I need to stamp the envelope with the Damask Print to finish the card.
