Embellished Ornaments: Black, White and a Splash of Vanilla!

Today, I have a holiday card to share. Featuring a bunch of new products. I started with a Whisper White base and a layer of Basic Black. Who says a Christmas card can't have black?! I think it's quite elegant. I cut a Whisper White layer 1/8" smaller thank the black one and stamped the pine sprig and pine cone image from Wonderland with Archival Black ink. I love making my own designer series paper and it's so simple to do!

For my next addition, I die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies and Basic Black card stock again. I centered it onto my stamped layer. Then the focal point, the beautiful ornament from Embellished Ornaments. 

It's a very subtle difference, but I actually stamped onto Very Vanilla and not Whisper White. I used Versamark and Black Embossing Powder. Heat set it before die cutting with the coordinating framelits dies. The embossed ornament really adds a nice look to this card. I went a step further and added some of the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum. This vellum is gorgeous. I chose my favourite design but instead of using the gold side, flipped it to the reverse side and used the silver. It's more subtle than the gold but that was what I was going for. 

I added the top to the ornament with Silver Glimmer Paper and a piece of Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine tied into a bow. The Peace sentiment is die cut using the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies using Black Glimmer Paper. I can't say enough how much I love this black glimmer paper... I love, love, love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I adhered it to the vellum with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Another love it product!! I hope you like my card, have a great day! 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
