Black & White

At SSSD, August color of the month was black, white and grey. This month in another swap,we make a Masculine card in black & white.I went off the deep end making black & white cards. There is one a couple of posts down that I made using scraps for a challenge. The post below this, I used black & purple. Oh, that's not black & white is it. And this month, for a Feminine card, white on white.  Ok, ok, back to black, white and grey

This is the card I made for the August color of the month swap.  At our SU club, one of the members brought in her project for us to make and it was this card, only not B&W. It is a beautiful card and not too hard to make. Just gotta get those fold lines straight. This card, by the way, takes a full sheet of 12 x 12 patterned or solid light weight card stock  The patterned paper I used is S.E.I. White elegance. Its a beautiful paper.

This is the inside of the card.The butterflies are punched from a sparkly black which was in my scrap drawer along with the grey paper I used. The grey paper is textured. The punch and stamp are SU.

My card for September, Masculine in black & white.

I created the background paper on my computer. I did the background paper and sentiment using Word.I don't remember where I got the image. It is a digi and the drive I had it on gave up the ghost, so I no longer have it. Its a fun digi and is perfect for paper piecing.

Now that I have discovered what one can do with black & white...  I love the elegance of the first card and the fun of the second card.

Thanks for stopping by,  Take Care

I love BOTH cards but the second one made me laugh.. the kid driving and the dog with his tongue hanging out is precious... too bad you don't have that digi to use again! Thanks for sharing... Love them both! Kathi

Both cards are just fabulous in their own way. Great way to use your computer to create background paper.

Wonderful cards, Joyce! I love the fold of the first one - so interesting. That is a fantastic image in the second and I love how you did the background.
