Black and white xmas card

Here is a black and white xmas card I have made. The image is a Karens Doodles digi image called First taste of snow. I have cut out the image with my circle nesties.

I have used the sketch over at Stamp something. The white card base is 14.5cm x 14.5cm, I added some black card and then I embossed some white card with my Cuttlebug swiss dots folder and stuck that down too. I cut another two circles and then embossed them using my ice crystals Cuttlebug folder and layered onto some black scalloped circles. I printed off a Let it snow sentiment ticket and layered it onto some more black card and added to card with 3d foam.
I cut some snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch and some glittered card and stuck to card with pinflair gel.
