No layers! Oh my! Sometimes the simplest looking cards are the hardest to make! However, this one did come together pretty quickly! I started with a different idea, but this is how it turned out. I do like it! I love Stampin' Up!'s Level 1 Hostess Set, Patterned Pines and used it here!
I started with Shimmer White Cardstock! Every card looks elegant with Shimmer Paper. I stamped the trio of Patterned Pines image with Gable Green Craft Ink and then embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I added a Summer Sun Classic Ink star at the top of the center tree. Merry Christmas from Christmas Greetings (a MUST have set!) is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and I did use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for placement. Finally, I wrapped some Gold Stretch Cord around the card and tied with a bow (which would NOT stay flat for photographing!) lol!
That's it! I'm anxious to see what the other Bloggers Challenge players came up with for this challenge! Have a great weekend. Come back tomorrow for Stamping 411's sketch challenge!
