Now on to my cards...

I chose to use the Christmas Ornaments Trio
for both of my shares.
I simply heat embossed all images with Black Embossing Powder onto some brushed silver card stock and
mounted that onto a black card base.
I was once told that a Christmas card couldn't be made using black! I think by using silver, some bling and a little ribbon,
it can!  What do you think??

For my next card, in addition to the Ornament set, I used the Calm & Bright background for the snowflake frame. I inked that up using Archival ink onto white card stock and mounted that on the same brushed silver card stock from above. I also used silver embossing powder this time for the ornament and colored it some using Distress Markers and edged it with the Archival. I created a background for my ornament piece using some phrasing from the set. I had the little glittered chipboard snowflake laying around and added that as well!

I hope you enjoyed these cards! Now hop on over to the one and only Pat Huntoon to check out her wonderful goodness!!

Until next time...
Happy Creating!
