Monochrome Christmas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Did you all have a nice weekend?
Don't they go so quickly!

I had a busy one but achieved quite a bit. Finally got all my Christmas cards made and made 2 videos, just need to edit them.

A vintage monochromatic Christmas card to share with you today.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card.
2. Matted and layered black pearlescent card to the base.
3. Embossed white card using Crafter's Companion Christmas words embossing folder.
4. Added lace (this is from Turkey) to the bottom with pearl flower trim.
5. Matted and layered the image onto black card.
6. To finish off I distressed the sentiment with DI hickory smoke.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I had never thought about using grayscale or sepia for Christmas cards, Linda, but now that I see this own, I'm going to have to try it. I do love the vintage! Of course, the lace is magnificent but I really adore the embossing.
