Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge

Hello my crafty friends and thank you for stopping by! Today is Tuesday which means I’m going to show you the new card I made for this week’s Just Us Girls Card Challenge. To check them out, click this link here. This challenge really had me struggling. It’s trend week and the host of this week’s challenge chose black backgrounds as the trend. I almost never do black backgrounds. Accents, yes, backgrounds, rarely. I know, I did one for last week’s challenge with the inlay die cuts but I needed to create something new for this challenge. It took me awhile and bouncing some ideas off my best friend but I finally came up with something. Let me show it to you 😊

First off, let me tell you what I used to make this card. I used my most recent stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp card kit called “Stronger Together”. You can still get the stamp set here. I used Ranger Silver and White Super Fine embossing powder for the main image and sentiment. I then added a bit of ribbon to the bottom with some ribbon I bought at Michael’s. Here is the final product:

There’s today’s blog post. Short and straight to the point. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. If you did, I would love it if you would consider following and subscribing here and over on Instagram (@ cardstockqueen). I post every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 11AM PST. Thank you so very much for stopping by and reading today, it means the world to me. Enjoy your day and until next time, keep creating! XO

  1. I’m sorry you struggled with making a card with a black background, Emma. It is beautiful and now that you’ve made one maybe you’ll make more. Thanks for sharing this one with us at Just Us Girls.

  2. One of the things I love about challenges is that we are often thrown out of our comfort zones and it can make us quite resourceful! I love the simplicity of this card. That silver embossed leafy stem image is so perfect for a black background and the sentiment is very touching – and very appropriate for these grim times. Vicky x
