Dramatic Christmas

The at Joan's Gardens Challenge this week is to create a black and white Christmas card, that has a frame.  The frame is created with Scor-Pal scoring on the outside edges of the black mat for this card, and it does not show well in the photo. I thought that using other frames detracted from the ornament itself, so I tried the more subtle one.  All the products except the pearls can be purchased at Joan's Gardens store.  The black matte is lightly embossed with Sizzix Holly Swirls and Sheet Music embossing Folders, set #657139.  The ornament is created using onyx high detail Versamark, embossed with black embossing powder on a Memory Box stamp (Drop Ornament Outline #G1877.  The Drop Ornament is cut from Memory Box Style #98378 die.  The Seasons Greetings sentiment is a sticker.  1/8 inch white satin ribbon, and Gelly Roll Clear Star pen highlighting some of the stamp's intricate details finishes this card.  If I was going to do this card again, I would stamp the ornament outlines on shiny photopaper, or on a shimmery white paper.
