A Flower Shop Birthday

I found a sample of this card on one of Terri's display boards at her last Technique Night.  I thought it was such a pretty black and white card.  There is something about black and white and white on white cards that intrigue me!  I thought this was so pretty that I took a photo of it so I could make it sometime.   Well, that "sometime" is now!

I used a folded half sheet of Basic Black card stock for my base. Then I took a quarter sheet of Whisper White card stock and cut 1/8" off on a long and a short side.  Next I took a piece of Basic Black scrap and cut it 2-1/8" x 5-1/4".  

I ran a quarter sheet of Whisper White through the Big Shot using the "Dotted" folder.  I punched out the flowers using the "Flower Shop" matching punch.  I used a 1/2" circle punch and punched out 3 Basic Black circles from scrap.  I glued them to the center of the flowers.  Yes, glue.  You could use some Glue Dots or Sticky Strip.  You need something that will stick well to the textured paper.  I find that snail tape often comes off so that was when I started using glue. 

The flowers were set in place using Dimensionals.  They were set in the center of the line where the black and white meet.  And in the center of each flower is a rhinestone. 

Add whatever words you wish that fit in the "Word Window" punch and add a little rhinestone to the left side.  As simple as that.  

I do not know the original designer of this card because it was on a display board.  So if you made this card or know who did, please let me know so I can give them the credit that is due to them.   Thank you!

And thank you too for stopping by today,
