Clean and Simple One Layer Card

Hi everyone,

Today, I am going to share with you a clean and simple one layer card I made with Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together clear stamps.

And also to let you know I made a BOO-BOO here but tried to salvage it as I really liked this simple design.

Here is my creation today,

Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together card ideas

Step by step instructions

  1. Stamp images using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink using a white card stock as the card base.  Mask the sitting penguin before stamping toboggan.
  2. Color all images with Copic Markers (W7, E00, YG00, B12, B000).
  3. Mask the snow area and the penguins and blend Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass, adding more pressure near to the mask and lighten it as you blend towards the sky.
  4. Apply EK powder tool over the sky area.  Stamp sentiment using Watermark and emboss with Zing embossing powder – Teal (Metallic Finish).

I had wanted a really simple card that is made up of four color palette – Black, yellow, shell and light blue…but after blending the sky…things changed! 🙂

The BOO-BOO is the weird tumbled glass color I got from blending!  It must have mixed with some green color on the blending foam and it became teal in color.  With that, I decided to emboss the sentiment with Teal color to kinda match the colors.  🙂

I decided to keep sky clear and snow area totally untouched as I wanted to have a subtle split of the ground and sky area with just that simple blending.

I hope you like this Christmas card idea.  Check out the Toboggan Together clear stamps, they have adorable critters for the coming Christmas card making theme,
