Quick One Layer Christmas Card


Hi, Cornelia here today, playing with Joyful

I made this simple and quick one layer card, that would be easy to mass-produce, if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make. And you know, Christmas is not too far off.....



So, lets get started!


I stamped the wreath from the Joyful set and sponged it, deliberately going outside the stamp.


Added the sentiment and colored the berries with red marker.


I then masked the sides and sponged again with a slightly lighter green' I then decided that the berries were not red enough and added red and gold Stickles to them. 



A small bow to finish it off. Here is a straight on view, but you can't see the Stickles that well.

Happy Stamping!

This looks great, Cornelia! Love the detail on that wreath stamp and the fade out of ink looks fantastic - thanks for the idea :)

Like that sponged banner and the Stickles are the perfect finishing touch!

Cool design. I love how your sponged and masked area fades away.
