Black & White Christmas

Just a really quick card for the new challenge over on the Daring Cardmaker's. I needed two more cards to complete all the ones required for sending. I can't show the second as it is for my Dad.
This one is just a simple holly & berries design stamped onto white card for the background. The plaque the main holly is on, was cut using my Carl Hand-Held Cutter with Victorian blade. I inked the edges black to give that "olde worlde" feel & did the same for the message box. Font used, Black Chancery as I think this is a true Christmas font!! I stamped two of the large holly & berries & overlaped them slightly. I used metallic red brads for the splash of colour.

I might make more over the coming days but right now I have two pages of a Wedding Album to complete & a Wedding Anniversary card to make. Been giving the B&W theme some thought for that & see what sketch I come up with.... Posted by Picasa

B&W always looks stylish, and the tiny bit of colour just lifts it to another level. The berries on this really catch the eye, Paula, I bet the recipient will bechuffed.

Don't forget to let us see your dad's card once he's had first-looks!
