First Ever.....1 Layer Christmas Card
I made a card!!!!!! That shouldn't be that exciting but for whatever reason putting stamp to paper lately has been a challenge for me. Judy posted a ninety minute challenge this morning over on the Hero Flickr site and I decided to give it a try.
My Christmas cards usually have many layers, but her challenge was to do a 1 layer holiday card. All stamps are by Hero Arts except the sentiment and it is by PTI.
First step was to cut a mask using a Spellbinders nestability. I placed that on the center of the card and sprayed Glimmer Mist around it. After the Mist was dry I stamped the Hero background star stamp and emobssed it. I used white ink and a polysparkle powder and the effect is really subtle.
Then I stamped and embossed the reindeer and colored it with a copic marker.
I used the Spellbinders nestability itself to draw outlines around the masked area using red and green markers. I added a few snowflakes to the center area around and below the reindeer. This wasn't part of the plan initially but there were a few smudges in those areas and I started to make the card over but it was getting close to the end of the 90 minutes.......so snowflakes it was.
Soooooo after I post this picture on the blog I notice the little piece of white paper stuck on the side near the sentiment. LOL!
But I am still happy..I MADE A CARD!!!! WOOHOO!!
My friend, Helen, says she has been looking at my blog everyday wondering when I was ever going to post something again. Helen, this one is for you!
Have a great day everyone and thanks so much for stopping by :)
