'Tis the Season

Inspired by this sketch from Cat's Creations, as well as the black and white challenge on PCP, I came up with this card. As you can see, I'm into embossing lately. I smooshed the chipboard ornament onto my VersaMark pad, and dumped embossing powder over the whole thing.

I didn't like the black background showing through the cut-out bit of the ornament, so I backed it with a piece of silver paper, which I also used for the sentiment.

I also embossed the mat around the sentiment and the "snowflakes" in the background. Lots of Stickles (of course!) and a rub-on finish it off.

Stamps: In the Spotlight (SU)
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White (SU), silver (unknown)
VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: chipboard ornament (Melissa Frances), sparkle brads (Making Memories), rub-on (Deja View), black embossing powder, Stickles (Ranger), corner rounder punch (EK Success), silver cording (Market Special Crafts), silver pearl embossing powder (unknown)
