and I love the clear lines and simplicity of these cards.
I am always a bit unsure of using only black and white on a card but every time I pluck up courage I am pleased with the results...hopefully you will agree...but if you don't do let me know...I welcome constructive encouragement...ha ha!
I am also out of my comfort zone when using gold and silver together but I think it works.
My starting point for these cards were some sale items I bought on one of my trips to the UK. I saw the pack of silver and black Christmas trees and they were so cheap I couldn't resist them...
I have saved some for my card class...I am looking forward to the reactions for a monochrome card... my girls really like the traditional colours for Christmas...reds, golds,greens etc.
Trees: I think they are from The Range.
Ribbon: From Ollie Doodles, Costa Blanca and my Mum's stash.
Greetings: Docrafts SeeD's and computer generated.
Circles cut using Big Shot and Nesties.
Backing paper is a black & white photocopy of a coloured paper.
Bling from stash as is all the card.
Copious amounts of Stickles Glitter glue...mainly Icicle and Silver.
