Black and White Stitched Leaves

I don’t think you can ever go wrong with Black and White….in clothing or in cards and when paired with Stitched Leaves, the result is wonderful. I wanted a quick card, but obviously one that was pleasant to look at for an upcoming class I’m hosting. I hadn’t yet used the negative portion of the Stitched Leaves dies yet so I started there.

Stitched Leaves

I used a standard size card base of 4-1/4 x 11 scored at 5-1/2 made with Thick Whisper White. Plaid Tidings 6×6 DSP was my go to for finding a plaid to show through from the Stitched Leaves. There are two black and white patterns and both worked great. I made a small border layer in basic black to go underneath my plaid and popped it all up on dimensionals.

My stitched leaves are die-cut into a piece of Thick Whisper White cut to 3-1/4 x 4-1/2. I used lots and lots of dimensionals to prop it up on the card base.

I loved the sentiment included with the Stitched Leaves stamp set “Hope Changes Everything” and stamped it in Versamark on black 3-1/4 x 1/2 then heat embossed with white powder with a little retired black thread underneath.

I mentioned earlier I was making this for a class I’m hosting. Well, I didn’t have enough of the black and white plaid for everyone coming to class so I improvised and created the same card but in a different color scheme, Blue and Vanilla. I used paper from the Boho Indigo product medley and recreated the same card. I think it is just a pretty as the Black and White, if I do say so myself.

Thank you for checking out another of my projects.  I hope you liked it. I always appreciate your comments.  Until next time…

Happy Stamping

  1. Gorgeous! While I was settled that I couldn’t love anything more than the black-and-white card (it’s gorgeous), I’m quite in love with the blue-and-vanilla one, too! Such fun!

  2. These are lovely, Lynn, a picture of perfect simplicity!
