One Layer Christmas Card Challenge - Guest Designer!

Hi guys

Today I'm excited as I'm Guest Designing over at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge!  Thanks so much to Shery and the team for inviting me to join them :)

This year they have made some changes to the challenge and each week it's 'anything one layer Christmas goes' so the perfect chance to get ahead with your stock of festive cards without being tied to a theme.

I decided to do some emboss resist with some Distress Ink blending for my card...

I started by stamping the snowflakes randomly in VersaMark ink before heating embossing in white.  I then blended three Distress Inks to create an ombre effect down the card before stamping the sentiment in black.  I was going to add a few sequins but felt it looked better left like this.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes
  • Ink: VersaMark; Distress Ink - Dusty Concord, Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White

Challenge entries:

Thanks so much for popping by today and thanks again to the Designers at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge for having me.

Bye for now
