I came across the CAS-ual Fridays Penguin Suit challenge this weekend.
You have to make a black and white card - no other colour allowed, not even a smidgen. I love black and white cards and I had the perfect stamp in mind - on loan from my crafty friend Lesley - so I had to join in. I started off by stamping the image, trimming it and mounting to a black layer. I then stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner of my 5 1/4" square card blank, added the image panel, added black grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot and rounded the right hand corners.
Inside I stamped just a part of the stamp in the bottom corner. Lastly I added a circle element to the envelope flap.
I really don't think you can go wrong with a black and white card, they seem to come together quickly, especially if you keep to a CAS design. I found after making this card I was really keen to make another one so stay tuned for another post today with another card for the CFC #36 challenge!
