Black and White Masculine card

Fast and easy!!!

We used black card stock and black embossed designer paper as the base of this card.

Then, we adhered a 2"x5" strip of gray cardstock to the left side and taped on alternating squares of black and white cardstock.

As you can see, I am not too good at lining up my squares.  But, you get the idea, anyway.

This is a good use of left over card stock....with pieces that might generally be too small to use.
Then, we used the Decorative Label punch and punched one in gray and one in black.  We cut the gray one in half width wise....and attached the black to the front of the two pieces of the gray.  We glued on a white oval with the sentiment, "Spoil Yourself today".

We then added a cute 'screw' brad to that.

Try this idea using all different combinations of colors.  I thought this card looked like it would be good for a masculine card but you could change it up just by changing the colors.

Have a great day!!!

  1. That's a neat card. I didn't notice the squares till you said something. Guess I'd have to use a ruler. It would look great in other colors.
