A Joyful Study in Black and White

#stampinup   I just got the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack in a recent order and I've been itching to use it. Fortunately, this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge had the perfect sketch to use with this vellum and the coordinating Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper!

 Paper Craft Crew Challenge 172. #papercraftcrew #cardsketch

I started by cutting a Whisper White mat as a base to build my layers. I added a piece of the Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum, adhering it at the top with Glue Dots strategically placed behind snowflakes. I adhered the bottom of the vellum with Snail Adhesive, since that won't be seen. Next, I added a strip of the Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper at the bottom. I tied a length of White Glitter ribbon at the seam between the two pieces and adhered everything to a Basic Black card base.

Next, I stamped the "joy" sentiment from the "Your Presents" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Whisper White scrap and cut it out with one of the Chalk Talk Framelits. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I finished the card by adding an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment.

I really like how this card turned out. It's elegant--and it's a quick and easy card to make if you're making a bunch (and I am)!
