Paper craft project no. 300: Joyful wishes one layer card

Hello! Popping by today with a one layer card for the current challenge at Time Out Challenges, where it’s a Home Sweet Home Photo Inspiration challenge. We hope you can play with us…you have a week more to share your projects! Here’s the photo:

I was inspired by the wooden floor and crate so I mimicked those by scoring (embossing) the lower portion of my card base and then swiping various Distress inks (vintage photo, brushed corduroy, walnut stain) over it. Next, I stamped the gift image and colored with Chameleon Color Tones alcohol markers. I then masked it before stamping the holiday words in VersaMagic chalk ink (aegean blue). And the card is done :o)

Linking up my card to these fun challenges: (1) Stamping Sensations November Challenge – Simply Christmas; (2) Crafting When We Can #82 – Use Your Markers; (3) Love to Create #141 – Anything Goes; (4) Addicted to Stamps and More #121 – Anything Goes; and (5) Creative Card Crew #74 – Christmas Joy.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


PS: There’s a design team call for a new challenge that starts on January 6. If you enjoy making one layer cards and Christmas cards, please check it out here. Please feel free to pass the info along to anyone you think would be interested :o)
