Black and White Lake Scene

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I finish off the month with one last challenge.

Did you know that the 25th January is Opposite Day … For our challenge this week make a card/project that has opposites on it. Think opposite colors, on the color wheel, stripes and polka dots, black and white, mirror image, etc.

As you can see the 'opposite' I selected for this challenge was the colors black and white to create an Easel or Stand Up Card.

I had just received some of the new dies which were being released from Elizabeth Craft Designs this month and I wanted to play with this gorgeous Lake Scene die designed by Becky Seddon. There are so many different ways you can use this die, but for this card I kept it simple just die cutting from black cardstock and layering it onto white cardstock.

This die comes in two parts the postal edge square and the inner lake scene, so you also have the option of using the postal edge square as a stand alone die to create bases for your cards. 

I die cut a postal frame on it's own to layer to the bottom panel of my card 

For the sentiment on the base of the card I used three of the sentiments from the Words Set 3 - Happy Holidays die set which includes sentiments for many of the important events over the year. The sentiment is layered using the Stitched Fishtail Banners die set and I have also used one of the edges from the Valentines Edges die set. 

To finish off the card I added some Black Nuvo Drops.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope. It folds nice and flat.
