Paisley Petals goes chic!


Don't you think cards in black and white always look so chic?  At least I do. 

Over at CAS-ual Fridays the theme is black and white.  I had one idea mulling around then went in a completely different direction as I spied my ironing board cover! 

 I looked for a suitable stamp and came up with Paisley Petals.   I thought the intricate design would look great embossed.  So I embossed it in black first on Whisper White using Versamark and Black Embossing Powder.  Then again on Basic Black card with White Embossing Powder adding a few extra stamps from the set.  I then attached the black piece onto the white matching up the design.  Some narrow Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, which is trimmed with white, is attached to the Whisper White panel with a tied knot to finish off.  The Whisper White panel was then attached to Basic Black card stock. 


So now the ironing board is up I better actually go do some ironing! Lol.

Aileen, I was just browsing in my Google reader, as it keeps me up to date with all the new posts for the blogs I follow, I saw your card and had to come in and leave you a comment.

FABULOUS! Love the monochromatic look.
