One layer wednesday: christmas in red and green

It almost pains me to start thinking about Christmas, so I found this week's one layer Wednesday a real challenge. But then I realise that I have actually already started my Christmas knitting. (watch out for a pattern coming soon), so it shouldn't really be so scary.

so I made this quick card with Stamps from PaperArtsy. I masked the sentiment and then dragged my very old whispers ink pads accross, with red in one diagonal direction and green in the other. (the ink pads are so old now, that the ink on the red pad has started to crystallize, still they do what I need)


  1. An interesting use for elderly pads - fab tip. I know that last year and the year before I struggled to make all my cards in time for Christmas so this year am doing a couple of Xmas related challenges to try to achieve it but there's just something so WRONG about Christmas in February!!! Lovely card btw!


  2. I like the shabby, vintage look on this card. Great sentiment!

  3. Way to go using the old ink pads! Cool card!

  4. What a great card - it does have dimension but great that it is one layered. :)

  5. What fabulous use of color and dragging the pads! Love the soft and shabby chic look of this!
