I love the simple elegance of a white and black card. I've seen this card design on other blogs and really like the look. Just matting the sentiment and making it the focal point places the object of the card in the forefront. When I have to send a sympathy card I like to write my own notes inside so this enables that. The base is a CuttleBug Swiss Dot embossing with a black ribbon around it with a white bow. They are hard to see but I put smoke gray rhinestones on the corners of the black mat. The mats were done with Nestabilities. Hope you like it.
