Black and white pattern paper is a good staple in your card making supplies. You can combine almost any color with black and white when making homemade cards. I used purple for the following examples.
Instead of using red for a Valentine's Day card, I chose purple to mix it up a bit. Black and white scraps of paper are great for punching out small hearts, which I used for an embellishment in this card.
Using the same small heart punch as the card above, I created a chain of hearts for this card. The chain was made by stringing beads through a narrow ribbon and placing hearts in between the beads.
This handmade card used diagonal black, grey and white stripes. I used a scallop circle punch for the sentiment, which was printed from a laser printer and layered purple and white strips along the side using my scallop border punch.
