Black and White Florals

Good morning!  Jess here with a black and white peony card!  I know I know…the lack of pink is totally foreign to me, too! 😉  I’ve seen so many beautiful cards recently using the new peony stamps from The Ton and I just kinda wanted to see what they would look like without any color at all.  I was very pleased to discover that they’re just as gorgeous in stark black and white!

For this card I used the Loose Peonies stamp set.  When I was working on my card last week I had stamped and heat-embossed a bunch of flowers and leaves from the set and had a few leftover that I decided to use for this card.  The flowers are stamped with versafine and heat-embossed with clear embossing powder before being cut out with my ScanNCut.  Then I stamped more of the flowers and leaves on black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder.  I adhered the white leaves and flower with a mixture of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape for dimension.  Next I stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, and trimmed it down to a banner.  I layered it over a piece of white cardstock so that it would stand out a little more and adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape.  I really like the way this card turned out because you could easily add color to the flower and get a totally different look or stamp it on colored cardstock for a different effect!  I’m definitely a fan of pink and coral flowers but I like this black and white look, too! 😉

Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!

    Jess, gorgeous! I love when you use pink and coral to, but this came so pretty, I love it as well. It’s not very hard with Effie’s stunning flowers and your talents to make stunning cards. TFSAI.
