Say It In…Black and White

Posted by on October 27, 2010 in Christmas Cards, Embossing | 5 comments

Here is my entry into the Say It In….Black and White Challenge over at Annabelle’s Stamps blog. Black and white are very bold and striking colours to work with and so why not make a Christmas card seeing that my new Hero Arts Decorative Ornament stamp only arrived last week and I haven’t had much of a chance to play with it.

I am also entering it into Challenge 14 at the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog where you have to make a Christmas card, but the colours red and green cannot be seen!

My inspiration for this card came from Kath’s beautiful card over at her blog. Mine is not quite as refined, but you can see where my inspiration came from.

Here is a close up of the ornaments which I black embossed and then raised using foam dimensionals.


Stamps: Hero Arts Decorative Ornament, Hero Arts Friend Definition
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, VersaMark Clear Ink
Card: Regal Craft Card (white horizontal single fold), White cardstock, black cardstock
Other Supplies: American Crafts Black embossing powder, heat gun, black ribbon, Kaisercraft pearls, Computer Font “Edwardian Script ITC”, Thin white ribbon, Foam dimensionals, glossy accents (to stick the white bows on with), black felt pen

Thanks for looking,
