Christmas Cheer


Hello everyone I hope your having a great day,its cooled down a bit in the south today thankfully but its still a beautiful day which is nice.
I had a good time making this card I love this stamp so much I have had it for a while but never got round to using it a crime I know.Right then how did I make it well I stamped my image onto white card then heat embossed it using clear powder I did this twice so that I could decoupage the baubles then simply matt and layered using white card and super glittery black glitter paper.I then used a Marianne poinsettia die,mini gems and a Martha Stewart leaf punch for my flower and added a 3 black pearls in the top corner.I hope you like it I think I do.
I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:

Wow! This is stunning! I always like black and white for Christmas cards and I love the dimension from the decoupaged baubles. Hugs, Tracey x

Beautifully classy & I love the dimension you achieved with the layering of the ornaments. The multiple matting works beatufiully especially with the glittery cardstock & I particularly like the way your leaves hang over the card's outer edge.

Your Christmas card is gorgeous! I have not thought of black and white as Christmas-y...but you have pulled it off beautifully. This card is so elegant and classy. Love the ornaments on the flourish and the black and white poinsettia. The way you have used the black and white, matted the cardstock is really lovely. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
