I'm submitting this card to the new Time Out Challenge - TOC#27 where the team would like us to make a CAS card with black, white and an optional splash of colour. I'm also playing along with Jingle Belles - JB:15:06 where the ladies would like us to use embossing. I think this image is just super (it's an old one and I can't remember the name of the set) and really suggests a "silent night". I stamped it in Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder - love the shine. I added a touch of colour to the houses with shades of grey and the splash of colour is the yellow light shining in the windows. I layered the image on to yellow card, using some dimensional tape for dimension. I also added a touch of sparkle to suggest the snow (see picture below). I finished the front with a simple sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat layer of yellow card and added a Christmas greeting.
Here's the close-up of the houses - you can see the shimmer of the "snow" - just love that Wink of Stella clear brush!!
Edited: I've just seen that this week's Just Us Girls - JUGS#285 has a colour challenge of black, white and one other colour - how lucky am I? I'm off to submit there too.
For more inspiration with our theme of "Silent Night" check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team - all so different. I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations! Have fun! Before I go, I thought I'd share a video of Winchester Cathedral Choir singing Silent Night - so beautiful:
