Paper craft project no. 284: Christmas magic one layer card [with video tutorial]

OLC Christmas Magic


Hello! It’s my turn to share a project over at the STAMPlorations blog. This time, I’m sharing a one layer card featuring stamps from Joyful. In creating my card, I used 5 different techniques. Can you guess what those techniques are by looking at my card above? You can read more about my process in this post. Plus, if you leave a comment there, you could win some stamps :o)

I also have a video showing how I made this card from start to finish. It’s a shorty — just a little over 8 minutes, in fast-forward motion, captioned, and accompanied by some lively silent film music. Hope you enjoy it!


I’d like to enter my card to the following fun challenges: Addicted to Stamps and More #117: Make Your Mark (I used Spectrum Noir markers to color the sleigh; entry #2); Merry Monday #130 – Silent Night (I created a snowy night scene); Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Extra for October – Anything Goes; Deep Ocean Challenge #88 – Christmas in October; Simon Says Monday Challenge – O is for…One Layer; and Inky Chicks #40 – Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
