Snowflakes and Christmas Tree Card

We're sharing a new crafting discovery in this project: the secret to stamping on black paper.....paint the paper with black acrylic paint.  It dries fast and is ready to apply stamps in just a few seconds.  You can, of course, paint any color paper black, but I used black paper and chalk stamping ink for this project.
This card measures 5.5" x 5.5" (13,9 cm x 13,9 cm). 

Our Seasons Greetings Tree Rubber Stamp measures, 2.2" x 3.1" (5,5 cm x 7,8 cm)  and was stamped on a pearl cardstock in a bright blue ink.  The Snowflake Background Rubber Stamp was stamped onto the pearl paper in 2 shades of blue, chalk ink around the Christmas Tree.  This stamp measure 2" x 3" (5 cm x 7,6 cm) and can be stamped in all different directions to create a background pattern.

The 2 shades of blue chalk stamping ink stand out so much on black paper when you brush black acrylic paint onto the surface first.  The matte finish of the paint shows the blue stamped images better than stamping on plain black paper.  It also gives the ink a slight raised appearance, bonus!

The middle of the card features some wintery-white vintage lace and a star sticker and snowflake sticker is added in 2 places on the card.  Tear the blue paper in the corners and reveal its white core.  The black layer is page curled using the end of a paint brush handle.  White school glue is brushed onto the corners and then glitter is applied using the same paint brush from the glue.  I love blue for Christmas decor, so we're going to have a fun, blue Christmas this year and hope you do, too!
