Make a Simple Black and White Christmas Card

I wanted to make a simple black and white Christmas card for the first Christmas Card Sunday project of the year. And this card takes less than 30 cents of card stock, so you can make quite a few in no time and for very little money!

To create the textured second layer I used the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder. I love the vintage look that this folder evokes, don't you? The beauty of using an embossing folder is it gives a lot of design flare to your cards without having to stamp it or use more expensive patterned paper. Again, saving time and money!

A few of the designs from the Painted Labels Dies were layered in Whisper White card stock to create some interest behind the sentiment. I think the outer edges of the larger one gives an impression of twine without actually needing to have some on hand. 🙂

The Christmas card greeting came from the Dashing Deer stamp set. I stamped it in Versamark Ink on Basic Black card stock and then embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.

The textured layer and the stamped card sentiment layer were attached using Stampin' Dimensionals. Everything else was glued using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

You can make a simple black and white Christmas card in a jiffy. And if you know anything about me, you know I'm all about reducing stress. I'd much rather create my Christmas cards gradually throughout the year rather than trying to knock them all out in just a few short weeks. What about you?

If you feel the same, join me here on most Sundays for more Christmas Card Sunday card ideas.
