A very simple black and white Christmas card
This would be a good male card, because of the simple black and white theme.
I started with the background and used a very dirty Watermark Pad from ClearSnap and a Jumbo Dauber.
around the edge a page of black and white from the 8 x 8 Tartan Pad and embossed it in silver. Then I distressed the edges with the Woodware Scruffer.
I usually use the scruffer before I emboss but this time I did it after to give a contrast.
I have used one of the stamps from the Jane Gill set Christmas Cheer that has five thoughtful Christmas verses. The card is the Black Textura 12 x 12 and I have used the Tag Top Punch, I really don't know what I did before I had these punches.
I have used the Stampendous Spoonful of Snow embossing powder kit on a snowflake brad.
A very simple and fast card that you could do in any colour of tartan if you don't think black and white are Christmasy.
