Damask in Black and White

On Monday, Flourishes is releasing three new sets, two Damask sets and a sentiment set.

The beautiful Damask stamp is a background stamp measuring 5.5 x 4.25 and will come in two versions.  A regular Damask and a “reverse” Damask.  The”Many Sentiments” set contains 11 stamps of which nine are often used phrases and two flourishy elements to compliment them.

damask-thank-you.jpgHere is a thank you card I made with the regular Damask stamp and the “Thank You” stamp from the Many Sentiments set.  I wanted to keep the card simple, yet have an elegant touch, so I used a black and white color scheme.

The Damask was stamped in black on white glossy and mounted to a black card.  I then stamped the image again on black card stock and embossed it in white.  Thank you was stamped on glossy and the black satin ribbon ties it all together.

bonbonbox-closed.jpgTo go along with the card, I made a small bon bon box using a template from Mirkwood Designs.  This was so easy!  Just print off the template onto white cardstock and cut out the shape.  Stamp Damask in black on the outside of the box. Tie a black scallop ribbon around it.  The tags were made using circle Nestabilities.  The white circle was lightly stamped with the Damask and the small Thank You is from the Flourished Words set.
