Seasons Greetings CAS/One Layer Card

Hi Everyone - Blessings to you all.  I have a few projects I'll be uploading - here is the first.  It's for a few challenges noted further down in this post.

Seasons Greetings - One Layer Card

I love CAS and OLC cards although they don't always like me LOL.   So as we come to the end of 2012 I've made it a goal to make more CAS and OLC cards going forward.  I hope that I'll get better at them!!  This card is both CAS and OLC and I love how it came out.

Here's a closeup that shows off the chunky glittery goodness that covers the Trees and Star of Wonder die.  I used two different types of glitter on the trees and they have such sparkle in dimension in real life.  Some of that can be seen in the close-up photos below.

To make this card I first had to determine the size, and how much space I would need for the tree stamp and sentiment (they're together on the same stamp).  I wanted a square card, so to fit this stamp I omitted some of larger trees and used only three of the smaller ones.  I cut the card base and added a score line/box, then used sticky notes to mask around the box before stamping the tree and sentiment image.

I sponged the sky, die-cut the Star of Wonder, added glitter to the trees and star, popped the star and the card was done!!  I also added an inside panel for the sentiment and a hand-stamped/signature tag to the back.  So quick and easy!!

This card is for the following challenges:

Here's what I used to make this card:
  • SU Scenic Season Stamp (w/omitted trees)
  • Always Artechoke Ink (Trees & Sentiment)
  • Ranger Distress Ink for sponging - Weathered Wood and Tumbled Glass
  • Memory Box Star of Wonder Die
  • Scor Pal
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
  • Clear Chunky Glitter

Thanks everyone for stopping by.  I wish you all a Wonderful Holiday!!

Hugs and Blessings,
