Baubles on Black


Black card bases are so in right now!  Don't be scared to make them - dare to make them! And your cards will stand out and look amazing.

First off take a look at my video tutorial for my card made with Bright Baubles, then check out the other designs I made using the same bundle.  I've left some hot tips for you throughout the post as well to help you recreate that black magic.


How fabulous do those brightly coloured baubles look against the deep black background?  

TIP: Make your coloured items pop by fussy cutting them with no white space around them. 


But even fussy cutting right up to the edge will still show white and ruin the effect so...

TIP: Run a black marker pen (NOT a blend it will run) around the side of the card and that will take care of any white.


Embossing folders can make great backgrounds but to help break up the abyss of black add something sparkly and shiny.  

TIP: Flick some Wink of Stella on the background, or add some white dots with a gel pen.  Most of all, don't forget some bling! (Rhinestones for the win in my book.)


Clean crisp sentiments are essential when working on black.  

TIP: Use an embossing buddy AND a small brush to make sure that you your black cardstock remains pristine and free from stray embossing powder.
