Black and White Anniversary Card


I made this anniversary card using only black and white colors. I started by punching 2 hearts and then decorating them to look like the bride and groom. For the groom, I punched a 2nd heart with black and fussy cut it in 2 pieces, snipping the lapels shape, and overlapping with "buttons." I added clear embossing to the lapels and buttons. The bow tie was fussy cut from a snippet of black, and the "shirt" was embossed with a SU! square lattice ef. For the bride's heart, I embossed it with a Sizzix Curlique and hearts EF and added some white pearls down the center. The sentiment was done with a Rubber Stampede stamp, and the card base was embossed with a Cuttlebug pinking stitch EF.

I'm sharing this with the Double D Challenge where they're celebrating their first blogaversary with a black and white challenge, using the following mood board:


Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday!

This is a fabulously elegant card. You never cease to amaze me with your talent. Just gorgeous. Enjoy the rest of today. Sorry for the Steelers lost. I haven't even talked to my son yet. I'm kind of afraid to because he has to be heart broken.
