Classic Black & White Congrats Card

Clean and simple Congrats card using Simply Wonderful (SAB) stamp set and two punches | Stampingville #cardmaking #papercrafts #stamping #StampinUp

Create this clean and simple congrats card in just minutes using two decorative punches and the Simply Wonderful stamp set (a free Sale-a-bration gift with qualifying purchase). This classic card, in black and white, is perfect for a wedding or perhaps a graduation.

Stampin' details:
  • To isolate the word "congrats", cover the rest of the stamp images using washi tape (or a post-it note). Ink the stamp (I used Whisper White Craft Ink), then carefully remove the tape. Stamp the image as you normally would.
  • I used Chalkboard Paper for the "congrats" banner (love it!), but Basic Black cardstock will work just fine.
  • The full image is stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cropped using the wide oval punch. 

Background layer is punched at both ends with Ornate Tag Topper Punch for elegant detail | Stampingville #cardmaking #papercrafts #stamping #StampinUp
  • The shaped panel behind the sentiment is created using the new Ornate Tag Topper Punch. Starting with a 2" x 4-1/2" strip of Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper, each end is cropped using the punch.
  • Basic Black Baker's Twine is threaded through the holes created by the tag punch. TIP: Use separate pieces of Baker's Twine to tie bows to the original pieces of Baker's Twine.
  • Pearl Basic Jewels give this card one final touch of class.
  • Use a narrow strip of the same patterned paper to add an easy but elegant touch to the envelope.
