Hello friends!  Did you know that black and white cards can be every bit as stunning as their colorful counterparts?

Carol here today and I have a sweet card today using the beautiful Daisy Bouquet #2 stamp.  I’ve paired this awesome stamp with my favorite type of patterned paper–gingham!! I am using all black and white set off with a pop of bright yellow. Black and white cards usually look more…….PUNCHY….when you use a bright color and this is a perfect example.

I love it when you have a beautiful stamp and it’s also an easy one to use to make a quick card!
creating the card base:
  1. Layer a 5-½” x 4-¼” piece of yellow card stock on a top folding A2 card base.
  2. Add gingham paper trimmed to 5-¼” x 4″.
  3. Stamp the Marvelous sentiment in black ink and die cut it with a die from the Nested Rectangle Small Stitched die set.
  4. Layer the sentiment onto a black piece of card stock.
  5. Use liquid glue and adhere it to the card base.

The Daisy Bouquet:
  1. Stamp the daisy onto Neenah Solar White 80# card stock with Copic safe ink.
  2. Color the image with Copic markers.  I’ve listed the markers at the end of this post.
  3. Die cut the piece with a Nested Rectangle Stitched die.
  4. Layer it onto a piece of black card stock with liquid glue.
  5. Add a piece of ribbon around the panel and tie into a knot.  I’ve had this ribbon forever in my stash!
  6. Add foam tape to the back of the panel and adhere it to the card base.
  7. I added a few Yellow Dandelion NUVO Crystal Drops for a bit of embellishment.
