 I really love the large background stamp (from Simon Says Stamp), which I used to make the panels for this card. I embossed a piece of black card using WOW Pale Gold EP and then cut it into three strips. The sentiment, (which is die cut and popped up on dimensional pads) is from Stampin' Up!
I am getting a little concerned about letters not arriving when posted at my nearest post box. A card I posted last Friday to Portsmouth with a first class stamp, still hasn't arrived at its destination. Several packages of masks I made and other mail posted there also have gone astray. Something very odd is going on! I may have to pursue the matter further!



  1. Love this card, Chrissie !
    Would love to know the name of the SSS background stamp.

  2. So very elegant! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CC&S:)

  3. Wow! What an elegant creation and a gorgeous take on our sketch. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the CC&S challenge blog!

  4. WOW, So elegant and chic, Chrissie ! Love the double contrast, gold/black and black/white, very eye-catching. By the way you just gave me an idea for a DT card I have to make....So thanks so much for the beautiful inspiration, for sharing and for playing along at ATSM.
    PS: I hope you will quickly solve the mystery of the postal mail, it is so frustrating !

  5. Wow that background stamp really packs a punch when embossed in gold on black - so elegant Chrissie! The post box does sound like cause for concern - there's snail mail, then there's ridiculous! Thanks for sharing your creation with us over at CAS Colours and Sketches this week!

  6. This is the most elegant card Chrissie! I love the gold embossed black paper strips and the way you coordinated your sentiment label. Thank you for playing with us at CAS Colours and Sketches this week!
    Sorry to hear you're having problems with your mail. Vicky x
