House of Cards October Classic & Elegant

It is time for another challenge over at the House of Cards Challenge blog.  This week it is the Classic & Elegant team's turn to post.  This month Mynn our challenge host is sharing a tutorial and asking us to make cards using a die or punch.  Here's my card for the challenge.

This is a CASE of a Sue Wilson card.  I loved her idea of the black Embossing Powder on Black paper.  Here's a closeup of it.

A little hard to see but truly elegant!  The banner is Lawn Fawn and the sentiment is Inspired by Stamping.   Die cuts are Spellbinders and Stampin'Up.  

Come join us at the House of Cards Challenge Blog and use your dies or punches!

Happy Crafting!
