Black, White, Pink, and Gold

I’ve been wanting to make a black, white and pink card for some time and I have finally brought it to fruition.

I started by die cutting a piece of black cardstock and a piece of white cardstock with Papertry Ink Striped Diagonal Cover Die. I switched out the black and white stripes so the white cardstock has black stripes and the black cardstock has white stripes.

The flowers I chose are from Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit from January. This kit is sold out, but look through your stash, any flower image would do. Originally I envisioned a single large flower with a long stem. Unfortunately I didn’t have one like that so I chose this image instead. A large rose with a couple leaves coming out of the corner would also be really pretty.

I stamped the flower image with versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I also watered down some gold paint and splattered it all over the diagonal backgrounds. The flowers are colored with Firefly Alcohol Markers. I found them at Tuesday Morning and they work wonderfully.

Digging through my sentiment dies, I found a miss you from My Favorite Things and a thanks from Papertry Ink and cut them both out of gold cardstock. I felt like the miss you got a little lost in the background so I added a strip of black cardstock across the card.

I trimmed the backgrounds slightly and put the black border on a white vertical card and the white border on a black horizontal card.

I finished off the cards by adding some white iridescent pearls and small gold strips along the black cardstock on the miss you card. These are 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (A2) cards.

I am just crazy about these cards. I don’t know why it took me so long to create in black, white and pink but there might be more in this color combination coming soon.

I hope you found some inspiration. Happy crafting!
