(Late) Wondercolor Wednesday - Black Tie

31 Days of Holiday Cards Continues!

Get into the holiday party mood by making a black tie affair card. Use mostly black and white for striking effect. Yes, the embellishments can add a splash of color or a bit of sparkle.

Tip: when using high contrast color combinations, simplicity of design often adds to the elegance.

I used a splash of red to brighten up the cards. Here are my tuxedo cards:
