Black and White Season's Greetings

Hi Krafters!

I cannot believe Christmas is next week!!! I don’t know about where you live, but we have not had any measurable now in approximately 287 days here! While I am not complaining about the lack of snow, but it truly is unheard of in Wisconsin! Well if you are missing snow (I’m not) here is a card for you J

My dear sis Kelli and I decided to do a swap. The challenge was to only use the colors black, white, grey/silver and a splash of color. Trust me, it was a challenge!

For this project, I used the Village Park stamp set by Inkadinkado. I stamped the trees first and cut the image out with the circle Nestability. I also stamped the sentiment with white ink and cut that out with a labels die. On a separate sheet of cardstock, I stamped the bridge and fussy cut it. I colored the image with colored pencils. I used Stormy Sky Distress Ink for the Sky. For a snowy affect, I used Diamond Stickles and let those dry. Finally I mounted the bridge with foam dots. The border was made using a Martha Stewart punch which was layered with a white ribbon.

That is it! I hope you enjoyed today’s project! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

    thanks for your concern and love :) I've had an arthritis flare and was literally down and out for a full month. It was AWFUL,,,,,,,but so glad that I finally found a doctor to diagnose and give me proper medication! I am feeling SO much better now! Hugs! Hope to see more of your gorgeous work as well!
