Hi Everyone

My friend asked me to make a very plain card and as I seem to be into black and white at the moment this is it!
I used my fav Cuttlebug embossing folder at the moment the Candles! along with an old fav the Swiss dots folder. I did some computer generated circular text for the greeting (font Lucida calligraphy) also outside the greeting a circle of full stops!. I matted onto a black scalloped circle cut with Cricut and cartridge Mini Monograms at 21/4". I added crystal gems around the scallops then pop dotted onto some black/white polka dot grosgrain ribbon. Lastly I used crystal gems on one of the candles. Very plain, very simple and very easy!

Word of WARNING!! When embossing I used my Big shot machine and as the folder is quite 'tight' going through the roller as it came through the other side the handle wacked back and really hit the inside of my wrist! OUCH!! I am now sporting a very nice bruise! lol! Moral of this story hold on tight to your handle!!

Thanks for looking!

Your so funny Julie. Hope your hands OK and I will Definately remember to hold on tight to the handle! lol
Love the monocramatic look it is my fav color combo which is why my living room is b/w with a dash of red.

When I was running my precious and most fav embossing folder, Swiss Dot, through the Cuttlebug, I was careless. The edge of the folder sort of stuck outside the perimeter and I smooshed, crinkled, curled up ..I haven't hit my hand yet but I sure clipped the outside edge of my folder. I love your card....

I just love this card! So elegant, and sophisticated! I haven't seen the candles folder here, but when I do, it will definitely be one I want to have. It is a gorgeous card. Great blog. Thanks for adding my blog to your favs, too!
