A quick Christmas Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your weekend going? My husband has been called into work today which means I am home alone with my crafty stash. Yesterday I received a parcel of stamps from Visible image so I have spent the morning playing.

I had this design in my mind but it did take me a while to get it to work the way I wanted it to.

I wanted to have a go at another CAS card I decided to use the White Christmas stamp set available from Visible Image. 

It did take me a while to get this design right but when I did it is a quick card to make. 

I made a mask for the top layer I cut it just a bit smaller so that there would be a border I also cut a square with a die. I used Distress ink and a brush to apply the ink to the mask.

Once this was done I used a clear ink pad to stamp the snowflake and the sentiment then they were heat embossed in silver. 

Finally I used a ruler and a Versa Mark pen to draw round the square of ink and this also was embossed in silver. 

These are the stamps that were in my happy post yesterday. 

Not quite a one layer card. I have some other ideas for these stamps they do stamp nicely. 

I hope that you enjoy the rest of today the sun is shining here. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
