One Layer Christmas Card


All week, I've been meaning to enter the 'travel' challenge at Christmas Card Challenges, but not got round to making a card till tonight - when there are only ten hours left to link up!

I decided to make this a one-layer card - joining in with the 'blue' challenge at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge. I don't find one-layer cards easy, but I really see the value of them when you go to post a card abroad!

My final piece of inspiration was from Addicted to Stamps - they have a photo inspiration and I decided to use the diamond pattern from the table in the picture.

The reindeer /verse stamp is by Clarity, the diamonds are a Judikins stamp and the sentiment is Stampin Up. If the glitter glue on the chimney looks wet...it is! Didn't want to miss the travel challenge deadline by waiting for it to dry,
