OLS29 Christmas in July

OLS29 Christmas in July

***Missed the deadline to enter by hours…oops!***

So it is Christmas in July at One-Layer Simplicity. Rules are to create a one-layer card, that is a single layer of cardstock folded in half with minimal embellishments.  I used the   W+9 Holiday Hugs set with lots of distressing!

I started with my A2 card base, masking off the top two-thirds, I distressed the bottom third in chipped sapphire and black soot. When dry, I stamped and white embossed the sentiment. After removing the top half mask, I stamped and clear embossed the main image.  I masked off the bear image and sentiment area to finish the background.  Using the rolling hills dies from Taylored Expressions, I created two stencils from Polyshrink. I stenciled “snowdrifts” in broken China down the top two-thirds. I unmasked all areas and copic-colored the main image.  The final touch was snowflake sequins.

Supplies: W+9 Holiday Hugs, Copics, Taylored Expressions Build a Scene Rolling Hills, Distress ink, Hero Arts snowflake sequins, Versafine, Versamark, Hero Arts embossing powder, Polyshrink
