Black and White Winter Card

Happy New Year! I still have not decided what this year's resolution will be. I would love to hear what you have decided to resolve for 2009.

The card for today was something that I had envisioned in my mind and then just had to put onto paper. I bought the stamp over the summer because I knew it would make a beautiful winter card. Black and white are my favorite shades; I wear them almost every day so I figured I would make a card that reflects my clothing style. I also decorated the inside of the card just as my muse Kim does on her beautiful cards.

    Here are the details of the card:

  • Stamp by Inkadinkado 96847

  • Cardstock Stampin Up in Whisper White & Basic Black

  • Black Memento Ink

  • EK Success Medium Snowflake Punch

  • EK Success Snowflake Long Punch

  • Silver baubles & Silver Sliders

  • Black ribbon

I hope you enjoyed my card. Here are some pictures of snow that we had in New York on New Years Eve. I thought I would share these because when I sent the pics over to Deb, she told me that my snow looks tropical compared to hers. I thought that was hilarious. How is the snow by you?

Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead. Thank you so much for your comments =)

Such a nice elegant feel to the card! No snow here at the moment (East Central Indiana), but we've had some and there will be more. Jan. & Feb. are the normal "get hit" with snow months.
