Snow Bird

November’s main theme at Crafts-Too-Challenge You is A Vintage Christmas. There are two parts to the monthly challenge and this is my second card which is for the:

A Monochromatic Vintage Christmas

Black and white is such a classic when doing Monochromatic so my card this week is just that. Christmas also looks so elegant when viewed as a snowy scene in the darkness.

Cut the Xmas Tree border die in white cardstock then stitched onto a piece of lace before hanging as a banner across my card. The bird stamp is from Stampin Up Beautiful Season which I cut into so that I could layer the Stampendous Snowy Postcard underneath. (Only used the centre part of the Snowy Postcard.) Both were inked with Versamark and white E P heated over the top plus the sentiment was done in the same way.
Ripped the edges of the black cardstock then inked with Versamark and white E P. Added the snow with dribbles of Shabby White Frantage
