Pastel and Black...

I made another card for CAS-ual Fridays Bold and Beautiful challenge...to make a clean and simple card using pastels and black.  I decided to put this one in the challenge, this one being VERY different from my other entry.
I have seen some beautiful cards done with this Papertrey Ink Harvest Berries leaves stamp in black, and decided to give it a go, myself.  This card is VERY simple in it's design, but I thought it was so cool to stamp it in an over-the-edge design.  I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment (Good Friends) and then clear embossed. Used my Papertrey Ink texture/impression plate(Linen/Canvas) to add texture to the Bashful Blue panel and popped up on white bazzill card.
OK...how do you do this???  I used a standard card and a piece of blue cardstock cut to standard card size.  I placed my stamp on gridded block and using the grids, lined the stamp against the top/left side and bottom/right side corners of the card in the EXACT same place on the white card AND on the blue piece of cardstock, separately stamping the stamp on the white top, then the blue top...then lining up the bottom and stamping the white bottom,  then the blue bottom.  I took the blue piece of cardstock and cut 1/2" off of each side and layered on black.  I just think the effect is so cool....
Another fun challenge!!

  9. This is beautiful! Love the blue panel on the white card - usually I do a white panel on colour so this is a fun and very effective way to change it up!
