White Christmas

Hi and welcome to another Merry Monday challenge.  This week's challenge is a very trendy color challenge - aqua, silver and white.



And here's my card:



I've admired this gorgeous Penny Black image for months and he finally came to live with me about a month ago.  This is his first outing.

I silver-embossed the snowman image onto Whisper White cardstock, then lightly outlined the snowbanks and snowman with copic markers.  I then laid down some Dazzling Details glitter over the color on the snowbanks.  I stamped the sentiment right into the image.  The image panel is popped up on dimensionals.




The layout is very simple to allow the main image to shine - some die cut and paper-pierced Coastal Cabana cardstock with a very thin layer of silver cardstock underneath.  To finish off the card, I used some silver taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for looking.  Check out the rest of the DT cards and have a go with this trendy color combo.

Products used:

Stamps:  White Christmas (Penny Black)
Ink:  Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Silver, Coastal Cabana
Accessories:  Silver EP, Essentials Paper Piercing Kit, Silver Taffeta Ribbon, Large Scallops Edgelits

Cheers
Karren

Such a sweet image, he always looks a little forlorn to me. I love the embossed and glittered edges. A lovely CAS card.
