The first challenge of 2021 for TGIF was a color challenge, black and white. In thinking of this color combo, I decided a silhouette would be a good start. I stamped the swinging girl from the Silhouette Scenes in Jet Black Stazon Ink on thick, white, cardstock, and placed her on Dimensionals. I usually use Memento Black Ink, but Stazon gives a darker image.

True Love



For her background, I cut the largest heart from the Be Mine Stitched Die Set from True Love Designer Paper, and positioned my swinging girl among the flowers. To add thickness to the heart, I cut a layer of Basic Black Cardstock, and glued the two together. True Love Designer Paper is wonderful, and you can see all of the patterns in my Product List below.


Behind the heart is a layer of Basic black Cardstock, cut with the largest Ornate Layers Die. The black layer is glued to a thick, white card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


I couldn’t think of a better sentiment than “love,” which is from the Well Written Die Set, cut from thick, white cardstock. I colored the “l” with a black Stampin’ Write Marker, so it would show against the white heart.

This is a simple card that makes me happy, and I hope it makes you feel that way also.
