Black and white Christmas

So that I can make enough Christmas cards reasonably quickly ready for the WEF sale, I bought the QVC TSV this week. However, I'd rather use the elements mixing and matching with things I've already got rather than as suggested by the kit.

This card is for challenge 35 on Ooh la la 'sparkly black and white Christmas' and also for Allsorts week 16, for which the challenge is to use anything but stamped images.

I've used an embossed base card and some silver ribbon with the baubles and greeting - a simple, but quite striking, card:

P.S. Naomi (Sugar Brown) has suggested that I enter this card for her challenge on CBC to show a Christmas card made using just two colours.


  1. Hi Hazel

    Beautiful card.

    I love black and white on cards. Great layout too.

  2. You can't beat a bit of black and white. Lovely Hazel. Good to see you making things again, but don't overdo it, they will understand if you can't make as many as usual.

  3. Gorgeous card Hazel :-) Black n White is always so striking eh !! Lovely :-)
