A One Layer Christmas Card with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Hi everyone!! Can you tell I’m in the Christmas spirit yet?? Today I have another Christmas card for you, but this card is so easy and only one layer! Because I used the Street Light stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps, it was so easy to fill up this card without any extra embellishment. You can watch the entire video tutorial down below!

The Street Light stamp is just the right size to fit an A2 panel, so I stamping with my MISTI and Versamark ink. I wanted to black heat emboss this image, and if you want a few tips and tricks on using black embossing powder, which can be a little difficult and messy, be sure to watch the video tutorial above! 

After heat embossing it was time to start creating that background. I made a few easy masks and started ink blending. I added a little yellow around the lights at the top of the street light image and then blended on a night sky over the rest of the background, making sure to leave a snowy ground!

The Christmas Greetings sentiment fits perfectly with this card! I made sure to heat emboss it in white so it really popped away from the background. But, I really wanted to add a little more of a Christmas feel to this card. So I used the small bow, colored it red and added it onto the street light with dimensional adhesive. This was the perfect little touch! I also embellished this card with a little Wink of Stella on the lights, bow, and snowy ground with the final touch being a layer of glossy accents over the tops of the lights! 


I hope you all enjoyed today’s simple one layer Christmas card! You can find all the supplies I used listed and linked down below! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
