I'm so glad you are enjoying the variety of handmade cards I receive through swaps and as acts of kindness from my downline and friendly, virtual community, the Stampin' Pretty Pals. I have more to share for you today, all with an elegant red and black theme.
The card above, created by Ellen Smallwood, actually folds flat for mailing and then is propped up as an easel display. So clever. She got the idea for the piano card (brilliant use of the Stampin' Up! Word Window Punch) from Janet Yates. Ellen added the "twisted double easel" idea and the pretty rose.
The Stampin' Up! Petite Pennants Builder Punch and coordinating Pennant Parade stamp set help this clean and simple card by Susan Lankford go together in a snap. Layering Whisper White over Whisper White is so classy.
This sweet card tucks flowers (flowers look so sophisticated in black) behind the strong shapes created by the Lattice Bigz Die. Pal Patti MacLeith designed this charming and innovative layout.
Linda Foster kept this design chic and textured. The touch of ribbon (yes, she dyed it black) and row of pearls are luscious touches.
to angle this card by Pal Kathy Cerny so that you could get the full
effect of the yummy sparkle! It's a beautiful example of Stampin' Up!
Pleasant Poppies stamp set and Kathy's ability to mix elements.
