It is good to be back

It has been a while since I published anything on the blog and a big reason for that has been a move across continents. But it is good to be back and doing my favorite thing - stamping, coloring, cutting, and glueing :)
For my first card, I decided to go with a Christmas card, since I need to make a lot of these and I have barely made any. But instead of the traditional red and green, I decided to go with black and white ! I like the effect though.


It is a Z card, done only in black and white - except for the two red gift boxes. I just couldn't resist that .....
This is how the card unfolds

A place to write .....

And on the other side

And now for the essentials
The stamp is magnolia tilda (of course), the stars are Spellbinders and the star banner in the front panel bottom is a memory box die.

Submitting for the following challenges
