Baroque Birthday

Here is a birthday card that I made for my friend Kelly.  She LOVES black so I wanted to make something that celebrated the colour.  This is an easy card to make, but the visual impact is high.   Hope you like.

"Baroque Birthday"
Stamps:  Baroque Motifs, I {heart} Hearts (sentiment) (Stampin' Up!) 
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!)
Ink:  Basic Black
Accessories & Tools:  Heart punch, dimensionals, adhesives, Stamp-a-ma-jig (optional)

* * * * *

I randomly stamped the large stamp from Baroque Motifs stamp set in Basic Black ink on the two Whisper White panels, changing the angle of the stamp each time and making sure not to overlap.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with the alignment ... one of the most valuable tools I have!!  I stamped the heart "friend" stamp from the I {heart} Hearts stamp set in Basic Black ink on a piece of Whisper White and then punched out the image using my Heart punch.  I then layered the card as shown in the picture, popping up the black square in the middle with dimensionals.
