Christmas in Black and White

The colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is all my fault, I'm afraid. I thought it would be interesting to take the colour out of Christmas and go black and white, with a grey in the mix (not silver!). I am not quite sure what this will throw up but for me it demanded a very contemporary card

I used Gorgeous Grunge and Off The Grid, my two fave stamps at the moment. The die cut words are from Memory Box. Although they don't go together, I really do love Christmas and so it works for me. I've added a few gems for Christmas glitz too.


  1. I love, love your contemporary take on Christmas. The background stamping, the lovely die cut and that touch of bling is both modern and elegant. Great work. Thanks for picking the colours, I had lots of fun with them x

  2. This is SO cool, Louise! I adore the grunge and grid and the bit of bling for the "i" in Christmas is fabulous! LOVE this CAS card! HUGS and have a great weekend! :) Mynn xx

  3. I think that Christmas is all about love Louis so your words are perfect together. Absolutely love that use of the grunge and grid set on this fabulous and trendy card. Really enjoying your challenges this month. Hope you are feeling much much better by now. Hugs D

  4. The sentiment really stands out against the grunge background. It's a terrific modern, non-traditional card!

  5. Hi Louise,
    I wanted to stop much earlier but there was always something in between! Your card is absolutely great! I love the modern touch and this punched sentiment!

    Wish you a nice sunday
