More Black, Red and White Cards...

As you can tell, I like putting these colors together! I had a class at the store using red, black and white and the ladies had a good time making the cards! We used a variety of stamps, Cuttlebug die cuts and folders, ribbon and a touch of glitter!
For this card, we use a background stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms and with black ink, stamped two-thirds of the design onto the cardstock. Next, we used the swiss dot border folder and put it through the Cuttlebug at the top of the card. We used one of the new Die Cut/Folder combos (Everyday Greetings) and cut out "get well soon" on red cardstock and attached it the upper left corner. Then we tied a red and black ribbon with a knot across the top of our stamped image (just in case it wasn't stamped straight) and added three tiny red pearls from Kaiser Craft to the lower right corner. Card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

For our next card, we stamped a darling panda bear with her baby from Coronado Island Stamps in black ink on glossy cardstock. Next, we took a piece of black cardstock and punched photo corners into each corner. We saved the waste pieces for our third card. We tucked the panda piece into the photo corners. Then we glued our polka-dot background piece to our black notecard, and attached red strips from side to side and top to bottom. We attached the panda piece to the card and for our final touch, we cut out "friends forever" from the Cuttlebug combo (Friends Forever) and attached it to the card. Card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.

Our last card is a simple card but has a pretty elegant look to it. We stamped our rose from Holly Berry House Stamps in black ink to the left of our white cardstock, then stamped our vertical "Thank you" from DRS Designs Stamps in red to the right. With a Quickie glue pen, we added crystal glitter to the rose for a shimmery effect. We glued our waste punch pieces to the corners of the piece, then mounted it to black cardstock. The XO's background paper fit well onto a red cardstock notecard. We attached our rose to the notecard at an angle and topped it with a pretty checked red and white bow. Card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches.
