seasons greetings...

Hello friends!!  Wow... our weather has really turned bad... but not nearly as bad as the weather in the Midwest!  I will take my Pacific Northwest rain and fog over a tornado any day!  I have a card that I made for the current Dynamic Duos challenge to use black and grey. 



Since this is "black tie" week at Dynamic Duos there is also a "dessert" option to make your card a Christmas card.  I decided to include the dessert option in my card today.  I pulled out my MFT Jumbo Snowflake Die-namics and die cut my snowflake from SU!'s Smoky Slate cardstock.  A large silver sequin with a rhinestone center was added to the snowflake.  Having an angled piece on your card front seems to be all the rage now and so I gave that a try.  I was able to make pretty even cuts, but I am definitely getting the brand new PTI Tipped Top die set... it will make cutting angled pieces so much easier!!  I stamped the sentiment from MFT's Seasonal Sentiments using black ink.  After adhering the snowflake to the angled piece and then adhering that piece to the card front I added a few grey and black sequins to finish things off.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI True Black & white; SU! Smoky Slate; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson; Die:  My Favorite Things

The colors add to the drama of this card. Not your typical Christmas colors but that card really stands out. So pretty.

Strikingly beautiful card, Rosemary! I love how you angled your panel and your snowflake is gorgeous!

Martha said...

WOW, Rosemary, this is STRIKING!
Love the design & that fabulous snowflake.

Hope you have more beautiful days soon. Can you believe we were at 90 degrees on Sunday? Our fall & winter temperatures fluctuate so much. We can be at 40 one day & 90 the next. I'm not complaining, the fall & winter months are my favorite seasons.
