Black & White Christmas

Been a while again since I last joined in a challenge (Again!) But as I was making Christmas Cards I thought I may as well join in with the Cupcake Craft Challenge. And a good challenge it is as well!


Had just been upto the craft shop and picked up some stunning vellum with a flourish and holly on it in white glitter. I brought 2 sheets, at £1 a sheet tho! :-/ Instantly, had the light bulb go off in my head for an idea.

   
Black & White Christmas
Only thing I struggled with........ how the hell to you stick vellum to a black background??!! (any tips would be much appreciated!) I have vellum glue but it shows up still... hence the gems! Stuck the gems on, then put little bits of glue under the gems to stick it down.

The sentiment is a Penny Black Stamp, which has been heat embossed as well. Unfortunately though, I couldn't find my white glitter embossing powder. Used silver glitter instead.

I do love a simple, elegant card tho!

Thanks for popping by to take a look.
