Black & White Christmas Card

Over on MSE Fifi Folle has set a challenge to use black and white on a card, so I have come up with this card, using my new sizzix embossing folder.

I love this folder, and have added a bit of bling to each of the trees to give it a bit of definition. I have then matted it onto a bit of silver and black onto an A6 card.

I didn't think that anything else was need as the trees in themselves are very elegant.

Really like the simplicity of this card, and as it only took about 15 minutes to put together (that is very quick for me!) I will be making some more of these to send to family and friends this year. The bling was some of the art stickers that I got in the Works shop the other day, and the smallest gems fit perfectly into the Christmas Trees. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - White and One other colour
Creative Cottage - Celebrations
The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Clean and Simple
2 Sisters Challenge - Monochromatic
