Black and White and Pink – A Dramatic Card

It’s time for some drama peeps and nothing is more dramatic than the color combination of pink, black and white. So I put together a little card using these colors. It doesn’t slide, explode or stand up but I’m pretty kicked with the way it turned out. And with Teachers Day just around the corner, I thought it would be a perfect way for my little boy to show his appreciation for his nursery ‘Aunty’. 

If you’re an avid crafter like me, you probably spend a great deal of time scouring YouTube for craft videos. One recurring trend I always see is ‘layering’. So I jumped on the bandwagon. This card has 4 different layers – black, then white, then pink pattern paper and finally a stamped and embossed card.

I’ve also learned that sentiments should not be hand-written unless you have a calligraphic hand writing style, which I certainly don’t. A professional and elegant card can quickly lose its beauty if such a risk is taken. Since I couldn’t find a stamp for this message, I used my computer and took a print out. I cut it to size and glued it on a black strip of card. Is that cheating?

Here’s a list of items I used for this creation all from ItsyBitsy of course:

  1. Black card stock
  2. White Card Stock
  3. Grosgrain Ribbon
  4. Pink Craft Rose
  5. Framelits Die – for the circles

Let me know what you think of this ‘dramatic card’ – I really love hearing your feedback, comments and tips!
