I cannot wait to see what everyone created with tonight's sets. Lots of great images. But...I am gonna have to wait to peek because my sweet daughter somehow convinced me that we need to be among the first throngs of people to see Eclipse tonight. I will let you know how it is for any of you who follow the Twillight stuff.
I created this card using Hugs & Prayers set (illustrated by Nina Brackett). I chose to go with a black and white theme to highlight some of the gorgeous filled in images in the set.
I used the solid bird and flowers to create a faux embossed look. (I achieved this look by stamping the images on white cardstock in black ink and then I carefully cut around the images leaving a white border. When you add these to onyx black cardstock, it gives the illusion that they are embossed...but they are not!) Cool eh? I added a strip of vellum along the side of the image and embossed the white panel in the background before adding the focal image to the card base.
