The Drama of Black and White


This is a second card I did for Friday's Limited Supply Challenge on Friday at SCS. The challenge was to only use black and white (including grays). This card is actually an update of a card I did over a year ago in the golds and blacks as part of a gift set. I must say that this black and white version is much more crisp and sharp while the gold and black was warm and rich. On this one I added the scallop corners and the square brads. The stamp is an SU retired stamp from the Kimono set. I used white and black detail embossing paper on white and black cardstock. Then sliced each in half and joined the opposites together. The designer paper is from a fab pack by Papertrey Ink. I used the swiss dot embossing folder on the white horizontal panel. You'll probably see another card at some point with this split kimono as I have the other two halves to play with another day.

Have a great evening!
