Monochrome Merry Christmas

After making a pile of Christmas cards in traditional colours, including using the Memory Box 'Merry Christmas' die HERE for many of them, I thought I'd make a few using just black and white.
I used a black card base and embossed a thin strip of black card for the top half of the card.  The snowflake was cut out with a paper punch and a clear gem finished off the card.  I was really pleased with the result and it made a change to pack away the red and green card!

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 153 ~ All snippets used, except for the base card
Inspirational Challenge #70 ~ Christmas Card with an optional twist of no red and green.


  1. I think black and white is so sharp it for Christmas cards!

  2. Nice one Liz. Black and white is always a good match.

  4. I have this die and never thought to emboss the background! Now you've given me an idea and it's swirling around in there! Thanks for sharing, Liz!

  5. Beautiful classy card design Liz..

  6. Really elegant card Liz! Black and white truly stands out from the crowd doesn't it?! Like how you embossed the upper part of the card for that extra 'pop'.

  7. Lovely clean and simple lines and such a classic. hugs Mrs A.

  8. Another stunner like your glittery star one. I am loving your die cut cards. The simple design lets those cuts make a bold statement. Very impressive!!!
