One Layer Card No. 20: Merry Christmas

2013-07-28 One Layer Card Merry Christmas

A2 card using sponging, blending, masking, and embossing techniques.

Stamps: reindeer, sentiment (Inkadinkado); background (Penny Black)
Inks: old paper, peeled paint, shabby shutters (Tim Holtz Distress inks); jet black, sienna, emerald green (Ranger Archival ink)
Other: clear embossing powder (Zing!); heat tool (Ranger); tinted embossing ink (Ranger)

Steps for creating this one layer card:

1. Cover the upper 2/3 of card base with post-it note before sponging and blending peeled paint, old paper, and shabby shutters distress inks on the bottom area.

2. Ink text background with emerald green and stamp. Remove post-it note.

3. Ink reindeer with jet black and stamp.

4. Ink sentiment with sienna and stamp.

5. Ink sentiment with tinted embossing ink and stamp over the same area again.

6. Apply clear embossing powder. Tap off excess. Emboss with heat tool.

Entering this in Penny Black Inc’s Beat the Heat Challenge. (The PB Christmas text background I used is very versatile — I know I’ll be using it a lot in other projects, particularly Christmas tags.)
