Video: Pinkfresh Studio – One Layer Holiday Card w/ Stamped Background

by May Park-

Hello, my crafty friends! Have you started making holiday cards? Today I have a mail-friendly card for your holiday card inspiration. As you know I’m a huge fan of one layer card with a stamped background.

Of course, I had to mix various images from several stamp sets: ShineLet’s CelebrateSimple JoyJoy & Cheer, and Playful Animal Friends 1. After stamping the sentiment from the Simple Joy stamp set in the middle of my A2 size white card panel, I stamped the images with Altenew Permanent Black Ink along the outside of the oval frame.

FYI, I used the masking technique to add some dimension and interest to my one layer card. Then I colored my images with Copic markers in a vintage-themed color combo. I didn’t add any shades to my images to enhance a graphic look of my card design.

I finished off my card by adding some dots with a white gel pen and some shimmer with Wink of Stella Glitter Clear Brush.

Video

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make my one layer card from start to finish. I’m sharing lots of tips and tricks you won’t want to miss. You can watch it above or in HD on YouTube.

I hope my card inspired you to create a one layer card by mixing small images. That’s all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Happy crafting!

    Thanks for your video tutorial, your card is beautiful! I don’t think I have the patience to make a card like yours with such small stamps but you’ve inspired me to try your technique with larger stamps. Thanks for the inspiration, May!

    Love this, May, and thoroughly enjoyed watching your video and learning tips. I’m not one to mask but just need to take the time and practice. Sure changes the looks of a one-layer card!
