International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - November 2020

I’m so excited to be featured in this month’s International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top ten of the November 2020 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card! The theme for the International Blog Highlights is "Thank You"! Here's my Fancy Fold card featuring the Quite Curvy Bundle that I shared in the International Highlights Blog Hop.  

Today's card is an elegant Black and White Thank You Card.  I love the look of embossed Whisper White on Black. With everything that is going on these days and the numbers of Covid-19 cases rising, it's a great time to send thank you cards to all of our Essential workers!


  1. Cut Basic Black cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut 2 pieces of Whisper White cardstock 1 3/4" x 3" 
  4. Emboss one piece using Dainty Diamonds Embossing Eolder and the other piece using Scripty Embossing Folder
  5. Adhere each piece to a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut 1 7/8" x 3 1/8"
  6. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals
  7. Cut a 5 1/4" piece of Black Organdy Ribbon.
  8. Adhere to the 2 embossed pieces using a Glue Dot.
  9. Cut a 1" x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock.
  10. Stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  11. Adhere to the card base over the ribbon using Dimensionals.
