Black and White Delight

These cards were a lot of fun to make as I've never had a request for all black and white before. I had no clue where to start, so I browsed SCS and combined a few ideas from there to create this set of ten thank you cards and coordinating envelopes. Big thanks to Jen for letting me borrow her Delight in Life stamp set which is from 2007's Sale-A-Bration as well as her Whisper White Craft Ink. Jen is an awesome stamper who before this weekend is over is hopefully going to be joining my downline! Yippeee!!! Between the two of us, I'm sure it won't be long before we own everything in the catalog, just in time for the new one to come out!!!

Stamps: Delight in Life, Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White Craft, Versamark
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray Cardstock
Accessories: White Organza Ribbon, Dimentionals

1. Score a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4 1/4 and fold on score line.
2. Stamp the big flower from Delight in Life in Basic Black several times onto a 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Basic Gray. Use Versamark to stamp the smaller flower in the gaps. 
3. Stamp the Thanks So Much sentiment from Pocket Silhouettes in Whisper White. Heat set to dry.
4. Mat Basic Gray piece onto 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic Black cardstock.
5. Tie a knot in a 6 1/2 inch piece of Organza Ribbon and wrap around gray and black pieces. Adhere to cardbase.
6. Stamp big flower onto Basic Black cardstock using Whisper White ink. Heat set to dry and cut out. Adhere over one of the flowers using dimentionals.
7. For the inside, mat a 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Whisper White to a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Basic Black. Stamp the small flower in the corner using Basic Black. Also do this in the corner of the envelope.
