Christmas Black and White Tri Shutter Card

Hello my friends!

Kathie McGuire here on your stamping weekend. I'm hoping my Tri Shutter card from the Fancy Folds and Motion CD will inspire you to make one, too!

All stamps are from The Rubber Cafe--I thought they were a perfect fit for this non-traditional colored Christmas card. I used a nice, sturdy black cardstock for the base from The Paper Temptress.

The clear crystals below the candle image are also from The Rubber Cafe; the hanging beads were a dollar store purchase. They come on a long piece of ribbon, so I cut them into individual pieces and taped each piece on the back side of the thin panel. Most people think I strung the beads by hand and are always surprised to learn it's a cheap and easy trick to use to embellish a card.

The black and white paper is a flocked pattern paper I purchased.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and thanks for stopping by.
