One Layer Holiday Card with Non-traditional Colours

by Aga

Hello Everyone! It's Aga here today and I would like to share a single layer holiday card I created using some non-traditional colour combo. I always love playing with different colour combinations for the holidays and this time I chose to use some modern, neutral and a little bit monochromatic palette.

I started by stamping and heat embossing a dear form the Modern Deer Stamp Set with the Altenew white crisp embossing powder onto kraft cardstock. Next I stamped my sentiment with black and used a masking technique to create the background using Majestic Mistletoe Stamp Set and Dusk Crisp Dye ink.

To finish my card I simply used a blue marker (No. B204 from the Altenew Artist Markers) and added some dots to mimic berries.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have lovely day!
Aga

I am so happy I found you! This card is great and you are inspirational. As soon as I saw it I knew I just have to have it. This stamp set is so versatile. I have used to make several samples including Rose gold, Navy blue, clear and antique gold embossing powders.
Thank you so much
