Black amd White CAS


I never realized exactly how many shades of white there were! Serious! On this card, we have white cardstock, white ribbon, and white (with black) DP. I really think all three "whites" are different.........Weird! This is probably the very first truly all white and black card I've ever made. I get one almost completed and always end up adding some type of other color to it. On this one, it was all I could do not to put a different colored brad in the center of that little flower. Anyway, I like how the card turned out - with the exception of all the different shades of white. I think that shows up more in the photo though than it does in real life!

This was for the SCS CAS61 (Monday) - Just mainly a sentiment. I don't have any "newlywed" cards made up so decided to use this simple sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The little flower was made with the scallop punch from SU. I punched out 10 of them - in alternating black and white prints - scrunched them up a bit and placed the brad in the center.

Thanks for stopping by.....................

Gorgeous card! You sound like my hubby, we were going to paint the bathroom "white," and Dan asked me which one? Wonderful job on the flower too.

I love this card. It is so elegant. Any shade of white works with any color. I tried to post a comment last evening but blogger wouldn't allow it. Kept telling me to clear my cookies?

This has a very elegant feel to it. I like your flower. I tried to make one but it just didn't work out. I think my paper was too thick.

I know what you mean about different whites. That happens to me a lot. And I never really notice the difference until I photograph the card and see it up close upon editing.
