Elegant and Shiny

Hi Stampers, it is Shirley posting today! Once again I have made a Christmas card to share with you. I really love these colors together.  I think it gives my card an
elegant look.

I started with a white card base.  For the next layer, I chose black card stock. I then added a embossed layer of white card stock. I cut a small strip of silver card stock to adhere to my card. I used a scalloped  border punch on gold paper and put black ribbon around it. I adhered these to the silver strip of card stock.

I cut two Memory Box Rizza Snowflakes from silver and gold paper. I kept the small pieces of snowflakes to intermingle with the opposite color snowflakes to give a more distinguished look. I used Art Institute Adhesive to glue the snowflakes, along with the inside pieces, to my card. I added Black Rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.

I used Versamark to stamp the sentiment, on white card stock, using the Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiment stamps, and then used the Silver Detail embossing powder.  I cut a piece of gold paper to put behind the sentiment. I used a corner rounder on both of these pieces and attached them to the card. 

Thanks, for coming over to the blog today.  Come back tomorrow for more inspiration!
