"What fun to be a cat!"
Here I am with my second post of the day and another entry in the Vandicrafts' Artistry Challenge - Black and White. This one has a Christmas theme.
I tried out my Core'dinations Chalk Core cardstock again with the Darice Christmas Tree embossing folder. I sanded it and then added clear glitter to the raised areas. I also added some smoke gray and clear rhinestones.
I embellished the corners of my tree panel with some fun little photo corners my friend, Karen Ladd, sent me with a ton of other fun stuff!! (THANKS, Karen!!!) And I even put little gems on them, too.
I embossed the greeting on vellum with the Darice Seasonal 3-Pack embossing folders. Then I Versamarked my brayer heavily and rolled it repeatedly over the vellum so areas, besides the words, would be covered and echo the chalkboard effect, somewhat. I heat embossed with that fabulous Wow! Opaque Bright White embossing powder. I like the slightly grunge look that happened. A few more gems and everything mounted on cardstock....and I was done.
Here's an angled shot. The glitter still doesn't really show.....except, of course, for the stray bits that are clinging where they do not belong!!! Ha! (shrug....)
Hope you enjoyed my card. It was fun trying out the black and white challenge! Thank you, Melissa!!!
