Black and Orange

The current Cuttlebug Mania challenge is 'Black and Orange' and as I'm not a Halloween person I've opted to make this note card.  I've used snippets of card for my sentiment so am also popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  Kath has also pointed me in the direction of the Allsorts challenge which is 'Orange/Purple/Black - all or any two' so I'm also entering that challenge (thanks Kath!).

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Woodware 'Going to Seed'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Small and Classic Scalloped Ovals Small
Embossing: Stripe/floral embossing folder (magazine freebie), Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Card: Orange and black
Other: Black gems, Sakura black glaze pen
Snippets: White and black card

I embossed the orange card, trimmed it slightly before layering it onto black card and attaching it to the card front.  I used the Sakura pen to highlight the dashes on the folder and added gems to the raised dots.  I die-cut and embossed a snippet of black card using the scalloped folder.  I then die-cut and embossed a snippet of white card and stamped my sentiment.   The sentiment was attached to the scalloped black oval and attached to my card.

It's wonderful to see how elegant and sophisticated a card can be in orange and black, Kate! It's NOT just for Halloween! This brings to mind an elegant ball gown to me and what a great use of snippets! Hugs, Darnell

Also, we can once again see how accidentally changing one single letter can change a word completely. As in how Kath can become Kate! Sorry for the typo, luv!!
