Contemporary Snowflake

Hi there,

I don't know about you but I just cant believe how quickly the weeks are whizzing by.  Now that all the Christmas ads are on telly, there's no getting away from the fact that Christmas is well and truly on it's way.  I've done quite well this year, getting ahead with my cards and here's another one to add to my stash:


I started off with a white base card but everything just looked lost so I decided to use black instead.  I know it's not a traditional colour but I'm reasonably happy with the end result as it looks quite contemporary.
I used a snowflake embossing folder on pink pearlised card for the sash and the silver snowflake has been made by using is two Sue Wilson dies.  The small pink snowflakes are made by a die from the same set, which I've used liquid pearls on. I finished the card with a sentiment by Inkylicious which I heat embossed.

I'm entering this card into this week's challenge at '52 Christmas Card Throwdown' and I've used their sketch:

I really like the black, it makes the card sophisticated and the pink card stand out. The silver snowflake is gorgeous and clever to use a different colour. I have that embossing folder, so I must get it out now I've seen your beautiful card. A striking Christmas card, love it x Well done you on getting ahead with the cards...much like myself this year too, which is very unusual x

The unusual color scheme (for a Christmas card) is very striking! I love the shimmer of the pearlized cardstock. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at 52CCT!
