Christmas Card Challenge #51

Good morning! Happy Sunday to you! Today I have a card to share for this week's Christmas Card Challenge. This week's challenge is to make a black and white card.

I decided to keep this card super simple and not use any patterned paper at all. I embossed my white background with the Snowflakes embossing folder and rounded all my corners. I stamped the image from Sparkle and Cheer by Taylored Expressions in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut it out with Circle Nestabilities. I layered that circle on a scalloped black circle.

For my sentiment banner, I used the It's a Banner Day 1 and Banner Holidays stamp sets, also by Taylored Expressions. I cut out the banner with the Banner Day 1 die and then traced around the outer portion of the die onto some black cardstock to make a background for it so that it would pop off of the white cardstock.

I finished off my card by adding a little Frosted Lace Stickles to the dove, and I added a border of White Opal Liquid Pearls on the edge of the circle. I also put a black pearl in each corner, and that was it!

Hopefully I'll be able to make a lot more cards to share with you this week since I am off all week for the Thanksgiving holidays! Yay! :)
