Dynamic Duos # 79: Black Tie Week

Once again, it is time for a new color challenge at Dynamic Duos.:) This week's challenge is to use Basic Black and Smokey Slate (or Silver) with a dessert option of Christmas.  Here's the challenge:
 
And here's what I made:
 As you can see, I chose to use Silver as opposed to Smokey Slate....and I also used my Stylish Stripes Embossing folder...AGAIN!  It was difficult to photograph...the Silver Foil sheet was very shinny in the sun.

 Pretty straight forward design elements. I first stamped a row trees in Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder. I then lightly sponged white craft ink around the trees.  Next, I stamped theb tree stamp in Whisper White craft repeatedly to create the background row of trees. I then stamped the snowflakes.  After it was dry, I got my glue pad out and stamped the ornaments onto the front row of trees and sprinkled them with Silver Stampin' Glitter and let it dry.  I tore a piece of white card stock to make the blanket of snow and added a bow for the top of the card using my SU small oval punch.  I used the SU: Warmth and Wonder Hostess stamp set from the Holiday Catalog to create this card.

The Dynamic Duo designers have made some awesome creations for this challenge! 
Make sure you check them out, and come join the fun! :)
