Tonight, I was cruising through Blogger and came across a new challenge that is only in its 10th week, called Black Tie Friday's. They are looking to increase their followers and participants.
This week's challenge is to create a project with black and white and use a cut-out. I would also like to enter this into the TSG181 Challenge from There She Goes Blog. Their challenge this week requires a project with a winter theme. I think this card fits the bill quite nicely.
Here is my interpretation.
Paper: Cruisin', Black CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH), Silver Pearls CS (Jo-Ann's)
Stamp: Very Merry Christmas (CTMH)
Ink: Black (CTMH)
Tools: Snowflakes Die (MFT), Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper-Piercer, Glue Pen (CTMH), Snow Dots Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)
Other: Licorice Opaques, Originals pattern (CTMH)
When I first looked at this challenge, I was trying to figure out how I could create a Christmas card with black and white and still make it look like Christmas. Then, I started rummaging through my pattern papers and Cruisin' immediately popped out at me. At first, when you look at the pattern, it doesn't immediately "scream" Christmas. But then I started thinking about all the sweaters I received over the years, and argyle was one of those patterns that was sort of predominant in childhood. LOL And so there you have it...how Cruisin' became part of a Christmas card.
Have a great night!
