Twos Company

Hello Friday and hello crafters.
As its Friday it means its challenge time over at Daring Cardmakers.
Our lovely host this week is Sharon and the challenge this week is to only use two colours on your card and one of the colours has to be your base card and sentiment.
What a tough challenge.  This one really got me thinking especially as I only use white or kraft as a base card and I generally use black for my sentiments.
So that was my only colour choices.
I went with BLACK and KRAFT.

I used the embossing folder called Picnic by Tammy Tutterow from Spellbinders and this time I inked up my embossing folder in black before I ran it through my Platinum Machine.  I have never tried this before as I thought I would ruin my folder but it worked great.

Next I used the Simply Said Phrase 2 Die from Spellbinders for my sentiment.  Which I cut from plain black card stock, glitter and mirror card.
I then mounted this onto mirror card to create a little border.
A lovely simple card which I think looks quite masculine.
I hope you can stop by the Design Team Blogs for more lovely inspiration.
Have a great weekend.


  1. I really like that colour combo - in my book anything with kraft is always good! x

  2. Fabulous card Dawn. Love the background, really clever technique and effect. Cathy x
