Black & White Card Projects
Black & White Mystery Box - Post 3

Black & White Mystery Box - Post 2

Back again to show you some more of my Black & White Projects that I made for the 2014 Mystery Box Swap.

We had to make three cards that were Non-Standard. I interpreted this to mean they weren't just an A5 card folded in half - in other words use a bit of fancy folding or some different shapes.

Love the challenge of this - and to bring in the elegance of Black and White - nice!!

The first card I settled on for this was a step-fold card.

Lucky me! - I hold team nights once a month for those ladies who have joined my team, and often one of two of the girls bring along some Show & Tell or even a project for everyone to make. Lovely Heidi Bell shared step fold cards AND curling petal flowers with us one night - so I did mine in Modern Medley Designer Series Paper with a black base so I could include it in my Mystery Box.

I also used the (now retired) Houndstooth Embossing Folder, The Bird Builder Punch (for the leaves) and the Petite Petals stamp set for some embellishments.

Pretty special card I reckon - and it couldn't go in a normal envelope so I packed it in an empty Clearmount stamp set case (DVD case) for posting.

I'll be back in a day or two with the other two "Non-Standard" cards I created for the Mystery Box Swap.

See you then!
