Another Tree card

I have made a few cards for birthdays, weddings & other occasions that I can't share just now but while I had the gear out i thought I'd have another play with this recently bought stamp. Instead of using background paper I made my own with a text stamp. It was a very simple design of white card blank with a black card rectangle mounted ontop. Then I added my stamped white rectangle ontop of that. I stamped the image & cut it out close to the design & mounted it onto a smaller rectangle & added it to the design. Then I applied frosted lace stickles all over the white ground area & the tree branches. It looks just like a frosty morning.
I'm pleased with it as I can't normally do black & white very well.
