Less is More: Silver

The challenge at Less is More is to use silver.  Saturday night I made several Christmas cards, but am just now getting around to posting them.  For my cards, I chose to I emboss in silver on black cardstock.  I had several sheets of beautiful, heavy silver cardstock and this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

I'm partial to the first two cards with the large tree images in silver.  I left a wide silver mat around the edges and stamped my sentiment on the inside.  I felt a sentiment on the outside would detract from the beauty and simplicity of the images.

Thanks for visiting.

My, you're on a roll! I love them all, but I think my favourite is also Peace on Earth. I like how it conveys a vastness of sky and space.

Wow, child, you can rock the silver on black! Each one is a winner in my book!!

They look like expensive high-end art-museum gift-shop quality cards. Know what I mean? That seems like superflurious hyperbolery, but it's not, really. Lots of great pins added to my Pinterest!! Thank you.

Wow, wow, and WOW!!! All of these are super cards!! I tried a little embossing, but it's almost impossible for me to emboss without getting little dots of silver all over the card! What's your secret!!
