Today’s card is inspired by this week’s challenge at Inspire.Create.Challenges.
When I saw the sketch challenge, I was pretty sure what I wanted to create – a clean and simple black and white Christmas card. I love the crispness of this card and it certainly could easily be duplicated.
My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. The “Thick” cardstock is ideal for any card base and really holds up nicely to build a card off of. I then took a pattern from the Merry Music DSP and cut it on a diagonal to adhere to the card front.
Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Softly Falling embossing folder and matted it on Basic Black cardstock. I cut out trees using the Card Front Builder Thinlits from the same pattern from the Merry Music DSP.
I stamped the Santa from the Hearts Come Home stamp set in Archival Black ink over the embossed cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.
