Black Elegance

Today I made good use of my maternity leave and time between baby naps, its a different story that my laundry is not done and the house is a mess but got me some crafty time. And now that I am done I can scratch my head for some quick dinner recipes :).

So I did a complete 180 degrees on the wedding monogram card posted couple days ago and tried to come up with something different and outside my comfort zone when it comes to choosing colors.

My card base for this card measures 5 1/2" square. my second layer is 5 1/4" square, on this piece of cardstock I glued aluminum foil and embossed it with spellbinders M-Bossibilities EL-006. Then I cut out a window with spellbinders marvelous squares. I framed the window with 2 layers of marvelous square die set and rolled the top layer with a pencil to give a dimension to the card. Stamped the monogram with JustRite monogram stamps and bordered it with the Damask borders. to finish the card I added some rhinestones and pearls, colored the dots on the embossed layer with copic marker R89 and Voila..........

Pretty in Pink

Recently I got a call from my friend who is getting married, asking me to make her a monogram card so I got thinking on how to make her a really special card......saw the challenge on JustRite papercrafts and immediately knew how I wanted this card to look. So here's a look in my window.

I had a lot of fun creating this card. My card base measures 5 1/4" X 5 1/4". I knew right away I wanted to use spellbinders gold ornament one die.....lately seems like this my go to die template. So I cut out two triangular ornaments and stuck them at the opposite corners of my card base. I wanted approximately 1" distance between the triangles so thats how I came up with 5 1/4" square base. I added the two smaller triangular ornaments at the other two ends. Filled the depression with pink stickles to give it sparkle. Cut out a rectangular shaped window for my monogram and framed the window with spellbinders floral oval, scalloped ovals large and fancy tags. Inside the card I stamped my monogram with the Just Rite monogram and Damask border stamps. Framed the monogram piece with spellbinders marvelous squares. Had to add some bling to the card. Also not sure if the picture shows but I also sprayed the monogram with tattered angels dazzling diamond glimmer mist.
