Black & White Christmas

Hi Everyone hope you are all enjoying the weekend, even if it is really cold.  We spent Saturday in London as we had a free night in a hotel so we enjoyed the day at the Royal Observatory followed by a nice meal.  We then saw Shrek the Musical which was really funny.

Today I am showing a black and white Christmas Card.  Unfortunately the picture does not really do it justice.  I coloured a part of a larger stamp in black/shades of grey which I then covered with a piece of Woodware double sided clear adhestive sheet.  I ran this through the Cuttlebug and then covered with a very fine glitter (after taking off the adhesive backing of course!).  This I then mounted on a tri folded card.  The border used on top of the black layer is Frostyville border by Memory Box.  A few gems to pick out some of the snowflakes (on the side which does not have the picture just to give it a bit of extra interest) and the card is complete.

I am off to Birkenhead for a few days with work so will be leaving the Husband with the remote!  See you soon.  Kx
