Black and White Card

Happy Friday!  I’m so glad it’s Friday, aren’t you?  It’s been a busy week and I am ready to sleep in.  I’ve had big, time consuming projects going on the last few weeks and I’m really looking forward to a lazy Saturday without a lot of stuff to do. 

My sister-in-law ordered a couple of cards from me last week and I thought I’d share one with you today.  It’s really simple but I really like how it turned out.

love you card

I used paper by Colorbok from Wal-Mart.  I really like this paper.  It cuts really well in the Cricut and is cheap!

black love you

For the frame, I used Lacy Labels.  For those of you that own this cartridge, don’t you LOVE it!  It has the best shapes/frames.  If you don’t have it, I’d suggest putting it on your must have list.

black love you close up

On the frame, I stamped “Love You” and added some bling.  I cannot for the life of me remember where the stamp came from!

black love you insides

Here’s the inside of the card.  I just added a mat of the patterned paper and used a Martha Stewart border punch for the black scalloped border.

love you envelope

And, last, the envelope.  If I’m making cards that won’t be mailed, I like to make the envelope match. I just used some strips of paper and a white decorative seal by Martha Stewart.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you all have a great day on our countdown to the weekend!
