ID: MC Aug/18 - Easel Black & White Carolers - ECD Dec25 - The Music In My Heart card
size: 7"w x 5"H (Easel closed)

Created: August 4, 2018

I was tossing around in my head for a good part of the evening this black and white card for a challenge this week. I usually need lots of color, but am extremely happy with this one.

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Dec 25" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a couple of the newer stamps from Quietfire Design

("Merry Christmas Background"); ("The Music In My Heart...")

Scored and folded my white cardstock to create the easel structure. Cut another piece of white cardstock same size as card and adhered to front.

Adhered a piece of Coral Reef paper to front (looks like snow ...).

Stamped the Merry Christmas background onto black cardstock using Distress Picket Fence and embossing with white embossing powder. Used my Tim's stampin Platform and repeated stamping to cover a larger area. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles" die set. (I'll use the drop out and excess pieces for another card...).

Stamped the door and the pine tree (both from Old Island Rubber) onto white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing. Fussy cut where needed and adhered to frame.

Electronically cut the carolers from black cardstock.

Die cut the "Dec 25" from black cardstock and adhered to a white picot edged cardstock.


On the floor: Adhered a piece of textured paper (Paper Roots wrapping paper from eons ago...). It has a satiny shiny look.

Stamped the quote onto black cardstock using the white and embossing with the white. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Circles die set. Cut off the top edge and adhered to floor to act as my stopper.

Tired a faux bow using a white gauze ribbon, adhering a black picot edge ribbon with Sookwang tape and attaching a pearl brad to the center to hold the bow together, then used hot glue to adhere to card floor.
