Ho, Ho, Ho, - Black and White Christmas

Ho, Ho, Ho, - come and celebrate another awesome Whimsy Christmas release with us! There are awesome stamps like the cutest reindeer and penguins as are there some amazing slimline products. One of them, the Slimline Diagonal Dots, I am using on my black & white Christmas card. I decided to keep my card just black and white. One half of the BG being a pattern paper from the Christmas Eve 6x6 papers  released earlier this month and the other half was embossed using the NEW Slimline Diagonal Dots embossing folder. I love this pattern, soooo versatile and perfect for any occasion. Then I cut out the words Merry and Christmas each from black and white cardstock. I wanted them to be half black and white as well. I kept the design very simple with just a few sequins for decoration.  Whimsy Products used:     Thanks for your visit! Hugs,

To create the background I used the NEW Holly Slimline Embossing Folder and a piece of kraft cardstock.

I wanted to make sure that only the embossed parts will be i
