Sweet Grass stamps sponsored a Designer's Challenge at Stampers Quest. These two designs will not appear on Stampers Quest.
The black and white design on the left is very very basic.
The band of black and white down the left side of the card is a piece from a background stamp that was stamped on plain white card stock and embossed with fine line black.
The phrase from Sweet Grass Stamps has been embossed using fine line black embossing powder and cut out with a Spellbinders die. The edge were then sponged in black.
I believe the card base for this card is from a DCWV stack called Luxury. It has a pearlie sheen to it that is lovely.
The die cut is by Quickutz. It is an extended cut die, this means if is close to 12 inches long. I like the bold, yet elegant statement that it makes.
The Sweet Grass phrase is stamped with VersaMark and embossed with fine line gold powder. After rounding the corners it was placed on the same cardstock as the die cut, rounding the corners on this layer as well.
