I am playing along with Merry Monday #86 challenge over on Lesley's blog Always Playing With Paper. The challenge is to use the "chalkboard technique" on your Christmas card. For my card layout I used an older Deconstructed Sketch #105.
My card base is Whisper White, the mats are all Basic Black and the DSP is from Simple Stories December Documented 6x6 pad. I stamped the sentiment and frame from Verve's Unto Us in Whisper White Craft ink on some Tim Holtz chalboard like paper and embossed it with white embossing powder. I used Verve's Classy Label die to cut it out. The holly leaves are a MS punch and I punched separate berries from Cherry Cobbler CS. The frame and holly leaves are mounted with foam dimensionals. The border is done with SU Scallop Trim border punch. I added a Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon and my card was done.
I am going to link this to Verve's December Diva Dare as it has some of my favorite new Verve stamps: Unto Us and the Classy Label Die
