Black and White Christmas

I really do like this Tiddly Inks image although I think it is no longer available. I've cut it out with a Nesties and then layered it onto some printed card (Salt n Pepper download from Funky Hand). I've made the background by embossing the card blank - a lot easier to do when I realised I need to open out the card so I wasn't shoving double thickness through! Swiss dots for the smaller panel.

I've dotted silver 3d paint around the edge of the image plus added some to the layered snowflake which is a Sizzix die.

The large black ribbon is from my stash (probably Blackburn market) and the smaller checked is from MeiFlower which I thoroughly recommend - wonderful range, great prices and very fast shipping!
