Fabulous Florets in black and white makes for an elegant card! Actually, most cards created in black and white have an elegant look. The Fabulous Florets stamp set is a great floral stamp set with a beautiful sentiment by e.e. cummings. This card actually looks quite a bit more complicated than it really is. I love making cards that look really complex, but really don’t take that long to make!

This Fabulous Florets black and white card has quite a bit of texture and dimension. It has several layers, including layered ribbons. It’s been dry embossed and heat embossed as well. When I first stamped the images, I used White Craft ink. I liked it, but it wasn’t popping enough. When I heat embossed the image, it gave me the Wow! factor I was looking for!
I also really like that the Label Love images and the Artisan Punch leave a little boarder of card stock around the stamped image. It automatically gives you the look of a mat behind the image without all of the trouble of actually making one!
