Black and White









Here is a presentation box made from a template kindly supplied by Jo. The box uses one complete sheet of A4 card with minimal cutting out and very little waste and I thought it might make a nice small present for someone with a couple of notelets inside. Jo's put a great tutorial on her blog so if you fancy having a go, pay her a visit.

I used card covered with Artylicious paper for the box and just added some gingham ribbon and a white scalloped border as I felt the paper made quite a statement!

I made 3 plain cards retaining the black and white theme - the box is big enough to hold 4 so perhaps I'll add another.

The two stamped cards were done by using white embossing powder onto black card - the larger one is a new stamp that I had not yet used so this was a perfect opportunity! The other card was done using a cuttlebug folder. I added gingham ribbon to all 3 and a couple of black gems on the larger stamped image.
Stampin for the Weekend has a current theme of Monochromatic, so this has become my entry!
