Here is my second card made for the CAS-ual Fridays Penguin Suit challenge which was to make a black and white card with no other colour allowed. I so enjoyed making the first card I just had to make another!
I used a 5 1/4" square white card base again. I stamped the SU! Medallion stamp, trimmed the white panel and mounted it to a black mat. I die cut the Memory Box Woven Circle shape and mounted that to a larger white circle. I stamped the sentiment, die cut it out and I popped it up over the Woven Circle. I added clear rhinestones for a touch of sparkle to finish off the front.
I don't normally add mat layers inside white card bases but when I opened the card I found some black marks - goodness only knows how they got there! Anyway, I added a black mat with a white panel stamped with a part of the Medallion image in the bottom corner. I stamped part of the image again in the corner on the front of the envelope to finish off. I think the SU! Medallion stamp is gorgeous - so elegant!
