Black & White Beauty

I was in love as soon as I saw the challenge at Black Tie Fridays this week!
I really wanted to do an elegant Christmas card for this challenge and have seen a lot of people doing these cutouts with ribbon behind them so I decided to try one for myself.
 I rarely use this Scallop Trim Corner punch because I can't get it lined up very well with the border punch it coordinates with.  I decided I liked it without the border punch!  I had a happy little accident with my ornaments...go figure!  I originally just had the big ribbon ornament.  There was a little smudge of adhesive on the white cardstock, and when I went to erase it, I got a huge smudge of ink on the card!  I decided to cover it with the two smaller ornaments.  I like it better now!  They have Dazzling Details on them for some pop!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
