The simple elegance of black and white makes a very distinctive Christmas Card. My card features dies and stamps by Impression Obsession.
Putting It TogetherI often to combine challenges sometimes to give myself an additional challenge. Black and white with no other colour and Christmas were the challenges I wanted to combine, very non-traditional colour scheme. The end results, though, is very elegant.
I die cut two of the sleigh and reindeer from heavy black cardstock.
After gluing and stacking the sleigh die cut, I went over it with Wink of Stella for a subtle glittery look.
I cut a panel of embossed cardstock from Stampin' up and dry fit the sleigh with the sentiment.
I embossed the sentiment to stand up better to the embossed background.
Inside, I stamped the sentiment and embellishments with black on a white pearl panel. When using a dark card base, I always add a white or light coloured pane.
