Always Kiss Me Goodnight

Hey guys! It's Monday and you know what that means....another fun challenge from The Cuttlebug Spot!!! Whoo Hoo! This week's challenge is a color challenge. We are challenging you to use the colors black/silver. I have to say when I first saw this challenge I was a bit weary. I would of never thought to put these 2 colors together but have to say I'm in love! They are so classy together and I definitely will be using these again!!!

For my DT project this week I chose to do a card. I have noticed these 'easel cards' a lot lately and knew I wanted to give it a try. So I researched and found these directions:

Yall have got to give this a try if you never have! It was so much fun and so easy to do! I just love the result! It's like having a card that is also a home decor' piece you can sit in your home. I think I will give this to Brandon for Valentine's Day. I used black for my base and added in some black/cream patterned paper from Creative Imaginations. I have had this paper and the coordinating stickers for quite some time, but had yet to use them. I'm glad I finally got to use them. I brought in some silver through some matte silver cardstock, metallic silver cardstock, silver magic mesh, silver staples, and silver brads. I added some black trim and black brads also. I used a vintage button. As for embossing, I used the Cuttlebug Victoria, Swiss Dots, and Lips embossing folders. I also used the Sizzix Texture Plate in Argyle. I staged this sitting on a mirror with a dish from my dish collection and some cream rose petals. Here is my card, which is meant to read:

'Always Kiss Me Goodnight'

Up close of the magic mesh. I pleated the mesh and turned up the pleats a tad for dimension. I hope you can tell.

The inside reads 'me goodnight' and then I added 'Happy Valentine's Day.' I used Making Memories Tiny alpha's.

Up close of some of the embossing:

I turned the card around a bit so you could see how it sits up like an easel. This was just so fun to make!!!
