Black & White Stationary for a Colorful Girl

When my friend Liz "commissioned" me to make her a stationary set in the ever-classic black and white combo, I used this project as an excuse to purchase the Flourish rubber stamp that I had been eyeing at PS.

I stamped the Flourish in a repeating pattern on white card stock, which I cut to fit black card stock with a scalloped edge.  I used Stickles glitter glue to add a few subtle dots of sparkle to the stamped pattern (difficult to see in these photos).  Stickles triggers fond childhood memories of the Christmas sweatshirts my aunt and I decorated with puff paint - yikes!  I will definitely have to find another use for this stuff!  Halloween costume, perhaps?!  I digress . . .

The Flourish stamp reappears on the envelope flap.

I was thrilled to find a use for this odd-shaped magnetic case that PS gave away at one of their workshops.  The robin's egg blue gives the stationary a pop of color and a polished presentation. 

A big black bow seals the deal!

Happy birthday, Liz!  If you read my blog before our celebratory dinner on Friday, you will have to act surprised about your gift! ;-)
