The June card swap on the Mac Forum had a theme of Silhouette's. so I went with Summer Silhouettes. Now this swap has taken me fully out of my comfort zone and my card design is very basic.
I used DCWV Taj Mahal design papers and black card. The panel across the front had been embossed with my birds and swirls embossing folder. The sentiment is "Penny Black" and was stamped in black ink and cut out with square nesties.
The butterflies are also "Penny Black" stamps, they were stamped in black on black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, so when the light hits them you can see the pattern. The inside of the cards were decorated with the same blue as the front.
I needed 6 cards so made 2 of each colour.
