This month the design team members of the Crafty Card Gallery have been tasked with making a card that either contains a penguin, or is black and white in colour.
To be honest, I don’t know that I even own a stamp of a penguin, but I do find black and white cards to be quite elegant, so that’s what I opted for.
This is a very simple card – extremely CAS. (Clean and Simple.)
I began with a plain white cardbase. I stamped the large circle image from the Inkadoo Circle and Dots set. (I bought my set from Blitsy, but not sure if they have them currently or not.) Then I added a black Kaisercraft flower, then a smaller white one, and lastly a black rhinestone.
Last of all I stamped the very elegant greeting “Just a note” from the Inspired by Stamping set, Vintage Dress Form.
That’s it – all done, very quick and easy!
Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
Wow Cheryl, it’s really simple but has a lot of impact – gorgeous simplicity I’ll say!

Wonderful CAS card! I too love black and white, very elegant!
Thanks Karen. I wasn’t sure about this one, but it has really grown on me!
Thanks Marcelle. I think this one will be really pretty in colours too. I’m going to try making it using embossing powder, and a different greeting. I’m guessing it will look totally different.
I love this Cheryl. Black and white, very simple but elegant. Somehow it’s very stunning.
Hey, I have a question. How did you get your signature on the bottom of your post? I have been wondering about that.
Hope you are staying cool – it was negative 2 Fahrenheit here last night – haha!
Beautiful and very elegant too.
Perfect CAS card CHeryl! Love it.
Hi Judy, thanks for stopping by! The signature was made by signing a piece of white paper, then it was scanned. Very easy!!
Thanks Verna. I find that black and white is nearly always very elegant!
Thanks Lindsay. It was a very quick and easy card to make. Well under five minutes from start to finish!
Yes, black and white cards are elegant and you chose the perfect sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at IBS.
