It’s not often I make a black-and-white card, but I wanted the simplicity of the opposing tones for the sweet card I made for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Here’s my card:
- Nature’s Beauty and Merry Moose. If you flipped through all the pages of Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog, you might have missed Nature’s Beauty because this gorgeous stamp set is featured on the back page of the catalog. A deer, a fox, a rabbit, trees, a branch and some snow – these sketched images are at the heart of this beautiful stamp set. Here’s a look at Nature’s Beauty: In addition to having a gorgeous stamp set, $3 of each stamp set sold will be given to mental health organizations by Stampin’ Up!. Here’s a closer look at the deer that’s front-and-center on my card: Below the deer is a sentiment that is perfect with this solitary deer. The sentiment is from the Merry Moose stamp set, part of the Merry Moose Bundle:
- Unexpected Backdrop. The sentiment below the deer is not a stretch as the stamp also comes from a nature-themed Christmas stamp set. The gorgeous black-and-white paper is from a less obvious pack of papers for a Christmas card. This page is found in the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog. It’s gorgeous, right? Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this pack of papers:I used another page from Monster Bash for a non-Halloween card last week.

- Layers. My card is so simple, but these layers are so easy to replicate with almost any combination of images and sentiments. Here are the measurements for the panels on my card:
