Today I have a black and white Christmas Card to share with you.
Using Shimmerlux White card (from Creative Expressions), I stamped the reindeer from the Creative Expressions Traditional Christmas Designs 3 stamp set in Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Black Sparkle embossing powder. This powder is so lovely - it sparkles in many different colours (you can see better in the close-up). I cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lys Squares dies.
I put a piece of black card through the Cuttlebug with the Creative Expressions Lattice embossing folder.
I cut a larger piece of the Shimmerlux card and randomly stamped the snowflake from the Creative Expressions Christmas Swirl stamp set using Jet Black Archival Ink.
I assembled these three pieces and then ran a strip of Super Sticky tape along the top. I ruffled some Black Vintage Ribbon along the tape and then added some Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to make sure the ribbon would stay in place.
I cut the first 3 layers of the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettias out using the Shimmerlux card and inked through the die with black Adirondack ink. I repeated this so I had 2 sets. I assembled the poinsettia and added a black button in the centre.
I tied a bow with the Black Vintage Ribbon, added it to the ribbon border, glued the poinsettia to the bow and added a couple of Creative Expressions White Pearl Stick Pins.
The design was then secured to a black 8" x 8" card. Finally, I did a bit of faux stitching around the edges of the black card.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
