Black and silver Christmas card

Hi and welcome.

The colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to use black and silver.  Not really my go to colours and this challenge has pushed me out of my comfort zone a bit. As always, neutrals such as black and white are allowed too…

The black and white snowflake dsp by Stampin Up made a good base.  I added silver glitter paper snowflakes die cut using the 3D snowflake embossing folder by Tim Holtz in both sizes.

The sentiment is from the Christmas to Remember stamp set, and the topper die cut from the Seasonal Labels die set, both by Stampin Up, and I added a die cut foliage sprig from the Holiday Greens die set by Tim Holtz.

I added some black half-backed pearls to the snowflake diecuts to finish.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge this week.

Enjoy your weekend

White on white Christmas card

Hello and welcome.

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas this year? Well the ladies over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown sure are! Andreja’s colour challenge this week is to use white and no other colour.

Notoriously difficult to photograph, white on white cards are stunning in real life.

I partial embossed a 6 inch card base using the music notes embossing folder by Stampin Up. A line of white embossing powder, mica and glitter was added using the encrusted jewel kit by Stampendous. The snowflake was stamped onto vellum using versamark ink and then heat embossed with chunky white embossing enamel and adhered to the card. Finally, a clear jewel by Stampin Up was adhered to the centre of the snowflake.

While I had all my supplies out, I made another card using similar techniques, this time adding flat back pearls as embellishments. I think my favourite is the first one – how about you?

I hope you’ve been inspired to join in the challenge this week.

Enjoy your weekend.
