Deepest Sympathy

Welcome back. Gosh it's Wednesday already. This week is flying by.

Let me share my second sympathy card from last Saturday's morning class. This started out as an all black card. Black card stock, black embossing powder, totally black. Then I had to rethink this card. Too much black. So here is the card that my students wound up making last Saturday. Black card with a white panel and a black tag with the sentiment.

Black on black is hard to photograph
Let me show you that label which is below the image on the card

Don't be afraid of black and make sure to use your embossing buddy on your card stock to keep those pesky specks of embossing powder away from where they do not belong. .LOL

We all need sympathy cards from time to time. So, check out your stamps and see which ones will make a great black and white card. So simple yet so striking.

In class I did a third card however I sold it before I photographed it. I loved that card so I will make another one and post it later. It was a really cool card.

The next  three cards I have to share with you are from last Saturday's afternoon class.Two of the cards are Easter cards and are so cute.
