One Layer for Christmas

Hello!  It is Lisa here with you today and I'm sharing a fun one layer that gives the illusion of dimension with some embossing.  Check it out...

To create this card I used the Cardinal Greetings Stamp Set, opting to make the small snowflake image the star of my card.  To do this I started by running my cardstock and rectangle die through my diecutting machine, but rather than cut the rectangle out I used the embossing plates and mat to emboss the frame into the card.  This created the perfect line for me to follow when masking off the edges.  I decided it would be easiest to stamp my sentiment first with Versafine ink and then stamp and emboss the snowflake randomly on the rest of the open area.  Once this had cooled off I used Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress ink to shade in my snowy sky.  The masked were then removed and I added a few splashes of water for more dimension in the background.  To finish the card off I used some blue and gold twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget to join our Instagram Challenge: Texture to put you in the running for a free stamp set of your choice!

Happy Crafting!
