CC216 Black & White Lotus Birthday Card~Big Shot embossing folder & Sizzix Die

Today's Splitcoaststampers color challenge (CC216) was "Real Black Olives" Make a card using Stampin' Up card stock in Real Red, Old Olive, Black & Whisper White.

I did most of this card on my Big Shot! I began by using one of my new Simple Impressions Embossing Folder~Border Dots by Sizzix on my Whisper White cs. The Old Olive Cs was cut on my Big Shot with the "Scribbles Swirls" die by Sizzix, I added Real Red accents using the same die. I used my ziggy glue pen to glue the swirls on. The card corners were rounded with the corner rounder punch.

My stamped sentiment is from a set of Amy Butler stamps called "Lotus Greetings" and inked in Stazon black. I used the ticket corner punch on my stamped piece and adhered it to black cs using dimensionals. I finished it up with some red & olive sticky gems and a piece of black organza ribbon.

I really love how classy this card came out, it would be a great card for a man or woman. with just a few changes it would make a really lovely invitation or announcment!

Have a Great day!
