STAMPtember | Simplicity is Everything. One Layer Minimalistic Christmas Cards

Hello friends! To me – less is more. This is something I’ve been trying to live by in my everyday life (less stuff, less clutter, less clothing, less furniture) and something I try to incorporate into my cardmaking. I’ve been sharing some super simplistic one layer cards lately (and I have more coming!), today I have a set of 2 Christmas projects that are nothing but minimalistic. If you aren’t into one layer cards, don’t worry! I will continue to share my other projects here as well! I’m just going through a “one-layer” phase.

CARD DETAILS

I used a “Wishing You Love at Christmas” sentiment from the Festive Trees stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and stamped it in black and red ink colors. The way this sentiment is designed it easily lets you stamp the word LOVE (you can also use JOY or PEACE) in a different color, this is very clever and very handy!

Next, I used branch image from the Spiritual Sentiment stamp set and stamped it 4 times radiating from the center. I also added a two heart image in between each branch duo.

I used my Copic markers in YG03 and R24 to color these images and also Nuvo Drops is Red Berry to add festive berried to the branches.

Here’s a look at my 2nd card created using identical supplies:

I stamped one of the Christmas trees from the Festive Trees stamp set and colored it using YG03, YG25 and YG67 markers, I also coated it with Nuvo Shimmer pen and added Gloss White Nuvo baubles on top.
