One thing I love about making cards is having the ability to make them easy to mail (that is, not bulky or heavy that requires more than one postage stamp). Here are some cards I made this weekend with a few ladies who came over to stamp Christmas cards (I will share that in a future post).
These cards are One Layer Christmas Cards for Giovana's Free For All Friday challenge at StampTV! While the ladies were stamping, I decided to check out some of Gina K’s videos at StampTV to show them all the great things STV has to offer and they are thrilled about the videos! We actually watched about 7 of them together. I loved the simple one layer card she made just swiping a few distress inks on it and placing a Christmas image over it in black ink then placing a sentiment at the bottom. I was able to whip up these cards in no time at all and the ladies enjoyed watching and even making one of their own!
I used stamps from Blessed is the Season and Holiday Cheer for my cards. Base weight white cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the distress inks are: Bundled Sage, Crushed Olive, Fired Brick, Tumbled Glass. I need to get Stormy Sky now so I can make a card EXACTLY like the one Gina did though! I also blinged up my images with stickles, Inkssentials white opaque pen and gold smooch! You can click on the collage of photos to see them bigger.
Hope you will play along in the challenge for your chance to win a free stamp set from Gina K valued up to $24.95! The drawing is random, you have until Thursday evening to upload your creation and you have nothing to lose – in fact, you can knock out a few Christmas cards for your stash like I did! Most importantly, you should have fun doing it!!
