One layer Gifts

see the glitter! 

Still trying to make one layer Christmas cards, spurred on by OLCCC. Their theme this time is 'gifts'. The gifts and the sentiment are from a free-with -magazine set.  I made a semi-circular mask and sponged over it with distress ink, and tried to add further dimension by using a grey marker. Then lots of glitter - that's the sad thing about craft blogging, you just don't get the twinkle! 

As well a OLCCC, I'd like to enter
Simply Create Too get ahead for Christmas 


  1. I think I had that fun and funky50's feel. Love the alternate color palette you used.

  2. Oh, how pretty Marina. Love those pink and purple packages with the touch of sparkle. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.

  3. Beautiful and very unusual Marina

  6. This is such a gorgeous one layer card! Kudos to you for getting your Christmas cards made already! Thanks for playing along with us at Color Throwdown!

  7. Purple is my favorite color, but I think I'm out of purple DPs. Of course I could follow your example and use my inks and make it one layer, it looks fab, but I'm still at the level of them turning out looking bland. Not feeling very courageous at the moment, so I'm admiring yours and holding back on my next one layer attempt....

  8. Ooh I love all the purple and the sparkle1 So pretty! Great masking to make a fabulous one layer design! So happy you could join us at the OLCCC!
