Simon Says Stamp | One Layer Layered Season’s Greetings Christmas Card

I know, the title of this post says “one layer” and “layered”, so which one is it really? It is both. The card I have for you today is nearly one layer (if you don’t count the sentiment panel which I have popped up with foam adhesive), it features some layered stamping using background cling stamps from Simon Says Stamp. It looks hard to make (possibly even intimidating to a beginner stamper), but it really is quite easy and only requires a handful of supplies.

CARD DETAILS

My package with the brand new Make Merry release goodies from Simon Says Stamp has been stuck in customs for nearly 3 weeks now, so this is why I don’t have any inspiration to share featuring the new goodies. Instead, I am using this as a perfect opportunity to go through my stash and play with my older supplies. A win-win, wouldn’t you agree?

Both of the cling backgrounds I used to make this card are true must-haves. The Pinecone background works not only for Holiday cards but also for Fall. It is so gorgeous! I shared a Fall card with this background stamp HERE, there’s also a video tutorial (watch below). And the Old Letter background is a timeless classic. It can layer over anything to give the project a slightly old, vintage look.

Here are a few more close up images of today’s project. Let me know what you think in the comments below! I love hearing from you!

    1. like this card, but have not seen directions or info on flick style with copics where do i find out how to do this?

    1. Pretty card and also like the ones with the browns, etc. Many interesting techniques to bring out cards to another level.

    1. Thanks for the great tutorial, I’m currently working on my Christmas card which has pine boughs and pine cones too, I wasn’t happy with the color combo I was using so I’m switching to the ones you are using here. The pine cones look so realistic! Thanks!
