Chalkboard Christmas Card - Hero Arts Inspiration Challenge

I made this chalkboard Christmas card for Hero Arts' Inspiration Challenge. I was inspired by this Christmas tree chalkboard card in the new holiday catalog. Here is the inspiration:

Based on this inspiration, I made the below chalkboard style Christmas card:

The image and text were stamped and embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock. Then, I use a Q-tip and apply the white ink around the image and text. After dry, I stamped the image and text a little off again to create the shadow effect. Finish the card with the silver gems and mount on the red cardstock. A quick and simple card but I was having fun to make it.

Cardstocks: Stampin' Up
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL559 & K5524)
Ink Pads: Stamping' Up
Others: white embossing powder and silver gems
