Black & White Simplicity

Another gloomy day, the rain has not stopped yet.  That means I am indoors creating cards.

I have another flower project to share with you today.  I used the Lorelai Leaf in black and white for the outline of the arrangement and covered the branches with blossoms made using the Blooming Posie and Fancy Blossoms.  Using a  stylus and your mat form the flower petals and centers  Add to center of each flower some glue and a light dusting of Art Glitter in Black.  Add Tiny Bow to bottom of stems.

I attached the Opulent Oval in White to smaller Black A2 Mat, then glued it to the larger White A2 Mat. Next cut and glue a piece of Black cardstock to fit behind A2 Mat,  finally glue to standard White card size below.

My standard card size is as follows.  I trim White cardstock with Rotary cutter to 8" X 10".  Score the cardstock in the middle at the 5" line and use a bone folder to crease the edge of the paper to form a card 5" X 8". 

For trim on bottom of card pick one of the A2 Bracket Borders One you like and die cut two in White cardstock and glue in place adding one single flower to center.
