A Single Layer Card for FF0021

single layer card
It’s time for the Festive Friday Challenge, where every challenge is a party! For FF0021, we are celebrating 3D Day  and/or Single Layer. I always love a challenge…and for me, a single layer card is indeed a challenge.  That is why I selected the “twist”  and created a single layer card which uses the new Snow Is Glistening stamp set. (If you would like to learn more about the Snowflake Showcase Promotion and the set I am featuring today, check out THIS POST.)   Whatever way you decide to create is fine with us. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is an easy one!  No cardstock was harmed in the making of this card.  I used a Gold Foil Edged Card, which has a matching gold trimmed envelope.  The Tree image was inked in Versamark, and heat embossed in gold.  The sentiment and snowflakes were heat embossed in silver.  The final touch was to accent the Tree and Snowflakes with Red and Clear Rhinestones.  How easy is that?

  1. Ann this is very nice. When I first looked at it, I was like – I very sparingly use my gold foil paper, and I thought the top section was added to the gold foil. But then when I looked at your supplies I saw that neat paper with just the gold edge. And if I’m making oodles of Christmas cards, that could really add to the cost. So cool new product. And it’s just another layer that makes your card perfect!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! TFS

  3. Beautiful. Clean, simple and yet very elegant.
    What a simple card to mass-produce.
    Thanks Ann

  4. Very pretty, the gold and red are so festive! Hope to play this week as well!
