Hello and welcome...

We have a top folding notelet size card for you today.  The finished card measures 10.5 x 14.5cm, I cut a smaller black panel then a smaller white panel, the white panel is the one being decorated today

I used one of the stamps from a set designed by John Lockwood when he was with Creative Expressions, I don't have the name of this set and it doesn't appear to be on Creative Expressions Web Site.  I stamped the sentiment using a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad

The embossing folder was a freebie in a set by Crafter's Companion and I think I bought this several months ago.  Any embossing folder will work but if you don't have a thin oblong folder you just need to be careful positioning your card and folder before running it through your embossing machine

I positioned the e/f above the sentiment and ran it through my Platinum Machine.  To add a little extra detail I scored two horizontal lines above and below the embossed area, although it isn't necessary to do this

The flower spray is yet another freebie from quite sometime ago and stamped with the same ink pad

The insert doesn't have a verse but I did stamp it with the same flower spray stamp as well as adding this to the envelope and embossing the back of the envelope

  1. I love monochrome cards and this would be lovely for so many occasions. Thank you June.

  2. Black and white together - nothing nicer in my opinion.
    Its such a simple card but very striking, the font of the sentiment is really impressive xxx
