I was involved in a black/white and red/white card swap on SplitCoast Stampers. It requires that the cards ONLY have black and white or red and white!! At first I couldn't think of anything to create, so I waited till the last minute to get started on these. They are due next week so my back was up against the wall to get them done.
I must have been in a "Cuttlebug state of mind" when I started this project. Both cards used embossing folders and no stamps!! Not exactly my usual creations! I think the red/white one looks like a wrapped present. There are dimensionals under the "Make a Wish" embossing. Turned out pretty nice.
My black/white creation was influenced by a card I saw while surfing blogs. I took some the stacked heart idea and embossed background from the blog. Unfortunately I didn't save the person's name or site, so I can't give the person proper credit, sorry. When I use black as the base for a card I usually want to put a white insert (to write on) inside the card.
