Sophisticated Black and White Birthday Card
I made this birthday card for a friend who I think likes sparkly things but also has quite sophisticated tastes, so it combines the best of both worlds. I used a square white card blank then layered different papers from the same pack - a piece of patterned grey and white paper on the left part of the card, and a plain black paper on the right. Then I took a piece of patterned paper and cut out around the pattern including the butterfly, and overlaid that. Finally I took a piece of sparkly silver ribbon and stuck that where the two papers overlapped and added a black 'best wishes' sticker on the left. I think this card proves that monochrome isn't dull!
