This one is pretty straightforward, I used up some pattern paper that I’ve been hoarding, from Bobunny’s “Black Tie Affair”. Unfortunately it’s not available anymore and I’ve had a hard time finding a collection of black and white patterned paper that I really like. I don’t know why hoarding gets a bad rap. Ha!
The Happy Birthday sentiment die is from Simon Says Stamp, and it really helped me to decide that I wanted the card to be landscape orientation rather than portrait. It’s just about 5 1/4 inches long, and I loved that long sweeping look.
I used two sheets of patterned paper, (some green specialty paper and a big strip of black card stock) all adhered onto white card stock for the base. I had to cut each sheet of paper horizontally in the middle then reverse one side to get the design to “radiate” from the center of the card. I like how the strip of solid black paper in the middle moves to a black piece of paper with white design, then moves to a white piece of paper with black design then to white card stock for the card base. The pop of green was added to make it a little more interesting to look at. And the sequin confetti is from Studio Katia, Crystal Clear Confetti.
I hope that this inspires you to make something new today. Thanks for stopping by!
