Black and White Cards using Sue Wilson's fabulous Craft Dies

Hi again Friends! 
I am in the mood for "Black and White" and have designed 2 cards using some fabulous  Creative Expressions Craft dies by Sue Wilson. 

First up is a "You're in my Thoughts and Prayers" card using the lovely  Creative Expressions French Collection Corner, Border and Tag Craft Dies designed by Sue Wilson.
same card, different angle and lighting ...
Stamps:  Stampabilities sentiment called "You're in my Thoughts", #DR1039
Paper: Heavy White CS, Glossy Black CS
Paper Size: 5 & 1/4 x 7 & 1/4
Ink: Stampin' Up! Black
Accessories: Creative Expressions - French Collection Corner, Border and Tag dies by Sue Wilson, Spellbinders Grand Squares and Oval Dies, Spellbinders Embossing Folder, Adhesive Pearls, Foam Tape.
Techniques: Dry Embossing

The main panel was made by layering the lovely French Collection Corner die multiple times in a circle then a French tag die was placed behind the oval for extra interest. The bottom French border is also layered in black glossy CardStock for added contrast and dimension. 

Second, is a Wedding themed card called "Tie The Knot". This one was made using a beautiful background die by Creative Expressions - the Austrian Collection designed by the amazing Sue Wilson.  I added foam tape to the back for added dimension (this lovely die really does all the work for you). The small balck corners were punched using an EK Success Mini Corner Punch. The top oval panel was also lined with Stickles Glitter Glue and SU Ultrafine Glitter. A few Rhinestones were added as the finishing touch.
