I love the simple elegance of black and cream. Antique White 3 Girl JAM ribbon adds that final perfect. I decided not to add anything to the front of the card except paper and ribbon and to just keep it simple. I also used:
DCWV - La Creme Matstack - 2 pieces cut at 5.25"X4" (one for the patterned base of the front of the card and a second one for the inside of the card); one piece cut at 5" X 2 ")
Archival ink - Jet Black
Black cardstock base from my stash (8.5" X 5.5" - score at 4.5")
K. Andrew Designs - "Sympathetic Sayings" stamp set
That's it. Super simple! The sentiment is tucked into the inside of the card.
