One Layer Christmas Card


Popping in with a quick one layer Christmas card.  Cornelia is the muse at Muse Christmas Visions with this fabulous card:


I masked the edges of my card, stamped the snow globe and masked that, then sponged the background.  If you look hard you'll see some Stickles on the snowflakes and the tops of the Christmas trees around the base of the globe.  Because the sentiment had stars at the end, I wasn't going to add a star at the top, but the card didn't look balanced, so I blotted a star through the ARTplorations Oh My Stars stencil.  All of the stamps are from a freebie set that came with a magazine last winter.

As it's a one layer Christmas card, I can also play along at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge, where it's Anything Goes.
