Black & White with a Pop of Red!

Here's a card that's just black and white ... with a pop of one colour; I love the POP! of red against the stark black and white, so each section of my accordion card has a touch of red.

I used two Mini Magnolias on this project: Secret Tilda and New Years Edwin. I also kept the colouring of these two stamps monochrome (Copic list is below).

I didn't use any patterned paper again! Instead, I cut and folded black Bazzill cardstock for the base. The front of each section has a panel that's been embossed using my Cuttlebug. I kept to a dot pattern both in the embossing and in the ribbons for continuity.

Spellbinders scalloped circles were cut and some Michael's pearls in both black and white added. A few other stamps from my stash were used here and there, including one that had balloons in it. After colouring with Copics, I added some gloss with All Night Media's Clear Gloss, then attached six strings of white thread so Edwin could hold them. Dimension was added with foam under Tilda, Edwin and the balloons.

Here are the Copics I used:

Tilda:  C0, C1, C2, C3, C4
Edwin:  N0, N1, N3, N4, N5
Balloons:  R20, R29, R46, R59

Happy Birthday Pardner!

I made this barn card for a western-style birthday. If you look closely, I have scored it to create the wood panels on the barn, doors and even inside on the wooden floor.

There is no patterned paper on this card; just Bazzill cardstock. I attached the white framing with 1/8" Scor-Tape; it made it so easy to do!

I also got my Cricut going and cut out my text using a Western font. Some Dollar Store sheer ribbon, Michael's roses, brad, clip and string was all that was added.

Here's a closeup:

Copics used:

Tilda:  E0000, E00, E01, E33, E37, E50, E53, E55, R000, R32, R37 and C4

Horse:  C4, C6, C10, Y11,  E30, E33 and E37

That was fun!
