Quick Black, White and Kraft Cards

Today, I shared two quick cards on Julianna Hudgins's Positively Me blog


These two cards are the quickest project I've made in a long time! I love how they turned out! Very clean, classic elegance in Kraft, black and white! Simple, too!

Both cards use two of the same flowers as I used on my Bright Jewel Flowers box!  Yet, these flowers are a complete contrast to the bright flowers!


Each card is an A2 size. I embossed the front of each one with Spellbinders™ EG-002 Dainty Dots M-Bossabilities Grand embossing folder which has single dots on one side and a pattern of 4 dots on the other side. 

The Kraft and black mats were cut with  Spellbinders™ S5-131 A2 Matting Basics A #4 (#1 being the smallest) and Spellbinders™ S5-132 A2 Matting Basics B #5.  These die sets make cutting mats so easy!  And always the same size!!!  Perfect for A2 size cards!

I used two different flowers from Spellbinders™ S5-143 Jewel Flowers and Flourishes on each card. I added a button center to each one from Buttons Galore and More Natural Grab Bag.   The flourish becomes the stem on the first card. On the second card, I used the stem from the set.

A little verse from JustRite "You Inspire Me" stamped in black ink and clear heat embossed finishes each card.

Quick and easy!

Thanks for visiting!
