Black and White

    Contemporary Christmas Card
I sprayed white CS with white sparkly spray and used this as the background.
I also sprayed Black CS with the same spray to use as the centre focus.
I cut out the Cosenza Tree Border Outline die
from Memory Box in white and black card.
After arranging the trees I covered them with Glossy Accents.
I also cut out the Grape Vine Border die from Memory Box
and popped it under the trees to 'ground' them.
The black centre part of the card has been raised onto foam to give a little definition.
I finished by stenciling white Embossing Paste and glitter 
through a circle stencil at the top of the card.
When I started the card I thought it would be a contemporary
Black and white Tree card and not a contemporary Christmas card.
Perhaps I'll continue and make the rest of my Christmas cards now?
