Hello everyone and happy Friday! It’s Lydia here. Today, I’m sharing a couple of graphic and sweet one-layer holiday cards.
For the first card, there was no masking involved so I started by stamping a fun cluster of triangles from Sohcahtoa Stamp Set using Pink Pearl, Dew Drops, Minty Mint, and Limestone Inks. As these colors are all very little, I could then stamp over them with darker inks and not have a problem. I then added in some holly using two of the smaller images from Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set. I used just the base layer of the single holly leaf and berry to keep on with the graphic look.
Next, I used Crimson Ink for the berry and Shadow Creek Ink for the leaf. Once these were stamped, I doodled around them using a black fine line pen to give a fun look. To finish, I added a sentiment from the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set.
The second card took a little more time but I just love the look of the pale holly with the darker triangles. So, to start, I stamped the holly leaves and berries into place using Pink Pearl and Minty Mint Inks. Once these were stamped, I then doodled around these to give the same effect as the first card.
I then masked off the images with masks created using masking paper and Peaceful Wreath Coordinating Dies. Once the dies were in place, I then stamped in a cluster of triangles using Silver Lake, Gray Denim, Cloudy Night, and Charcoal Gray Inks. To finish, I added a sentiment from the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set.
