Gotta love those Big Shot dies!
This is a really really simple card but I needed something quick and easy to take for swapping at a Stampin' UP! regional that I attended back in Sept. and this fit the bill. I had tried cutting out some of this diecut using the Tulipe die back in July when I was getting ready for convention but decided to go with Night of Navy cardstock instead of black so I didn't use these diecuts.

When it came down to just a day or so before time to leave for regionals I discovered that I still had these unfinished so I decided to use them. I stamped the thank you sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Encore silver metallic ink and it shows up so nicely on the black cardstock. I simply adhered the black layer with the "negative" with the cut out image onto a folded white cardstock base and that was it. I love the dramatic effect of black , silver and white together ..don't you?
If you don't have a Big Shot already, you need one! ;-) Jan
