Black and White Christmas Cards

I wanted to share the two Black and White Christmas cards that I did for the Kelli Jo's Swap on SCS.

My first card uses the single stamp from Stampin Up - Dasher. I loved this stamp set. I have used some black gingham patterned paper from Making Memories. I used the new Snow dots Embossing folder with some Gina K designs Mother of Pearl Metallic CS. This paper is just gorgeous and has an awesome sheen to it. I tried to get a close up picture.



here is the close up picture,



For my 2nd card, I used Gina K Designs Christmas in July set- Blessed is the Season. This set is just so pretty. I kept the design simple again. I used the script image from this set and created the background using Memento London Fog Ink. I felt that black might be too overwhelming. Then the tree image formed the focal image. I wanted to put some liquid applique or Stickles on the tree branches, but forgot to do that :(



Thanks for stopping by,
