Unfortunately, try as I might, I couldn't get a good photo that showed both the lovely vanilla card and the richly textured black panel. They show up better below...
The embossed star is raised from the panel and the black outline star is raised up again on dimensionals. Black, gold and vanilla seemed like such an elegantly formal combination but not one that immediately shouted 'Christmas' but I'm very pleased with the outcome. Possibly my favourite bit is the sentiment which is a mixture of black ink and gold embossing.
