I LOVE making black and white cards and this time I chose to accent it with purple. It seemed to be a great combination for Christmas! The black cs from MFP, Paper Studio black and white dp. I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamp set Brick Wall for the background and Red Breasted Nuthatch ( even though it is PURPLE!) set for both the outside and the inside. I also used Spellbinders Big scalloped ovals large for the bird, Labels 6 for the sentiments.
I decided to do embossing and that seemed to work very nicely on the black. AND of course it made a WONDERFUL glittery mess on the table too! I used white detail embossing for the brick wall, Wizard's Wand purple embossing for the bird and then sponged with Brilliance Victorian Violet ink. I colored the pinecones with Sakura glitter pens, added some white, purple snowflakes, buttons with purple and white cord and some ribbon, Added a few pearls too! The sentiment on the inside was stamped with Brilliance white ink and some bling added!
And Merry Christmas! One more Christmas card is finished!
