Onto today’s project…

For this card I wanted to keep it simple yet classy. I went with a black base and wanted to pull from that elegance to make a nice card that would work for a man or woman. I used my Corner Chomper to round the edges of the bottom corner add in a pop as well.

The lined piece is actually a B side from the My Mind’s Eye Sunshine 6×6 Paper Pad {total card count with this pad is nearing 20} and 2 1/2″ wide. I used my EK Success Diamond Lace border punch to give it a nice edge. I then inked the edges of this paper with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink before going around the edges with a Bic Ultra Fine Marker in Tuxedo Black.

For the sentiment on this card, I used the CTMH Say It in Style My Acrylix and a retired set for the heart. Be Mine is inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and the hearts are inked in Distress Ink Festive Berries from the Winter Limited Edition set.

Before I adhered the strip down, I went to my stash of ribbons and lace and pulled out a nice piece of cream lace. I cut it to size and adhered it down on near the top of the strip. I wanted to add some color as well so I got a piece of black grosgrain ribbon and some twine and tied it around the lace into a knot. Once this was secure, I used foam tape on the back and added it to the center of my card.

The final thing that I did for this card is to spray it with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist. I love how it muted some of the black but also made the entire card have a bit of sparkle.

This card is available for sale in my Etsy shop as well as many other cards. Jump on over and grab some today!
