A Black and White Card


In spite of the fact that it is a sunny day today, the wind is still very cool so it’s still not sitting outside on the porch weather yet...in fact, a light jacket was required. Today was grocery day instead of bird watching day…..we both decided we like to eat more than look at birds…..and besides, we were tired. Avid bird watchers we are not! The real avid watchers get to the parks at 6:00 in the morning to watch the warblers arrive after flying all night. We are not early morning people. Our beds are too comfortable and we are not motivated enough to get up at 4:00 in the morning to drive for an hour to see birds. We’re just happy to see a few in the afternoon and it gives us a nice long walk.

A friend of mine asked if I would make an anniversary card for someone married six years and of course I said yes. This is the first one I made….so far I’ve made three to give her some choices.


I decided to go for the black and white with a touch of silver for this card. The paper is from a 6” paper pack and I just cut two of them apart and then taped them together at the back and added the ribbon along the seam. The butterfly swag is a Memory Box die and it was die cut first in white and then the top one was die cut in black, along with the bodies. When I placed the white filigree butterfly on the top piece it sort of disappeared into the background so that’s when the black was die cut. It looked okay but of course I had the white filigree one sitting there and I placed it on top and with the black underneath, it really popped. Just the middle of each butterfly is glued down so the wings are free. The sentiment is a peel-off.

The next card will be the next post.

That’s all for a Monday, May-09-16

Cheers
