I'm submitting this to a couple of challenges; Colour Me Card Challenge - CMCC#42 and Merry Monday - MM#130 where the theme is "Silent Night". The Merry Monday graphic was the inspiration for this card, I thought that an Alpine Village would be very quiet on the night before Christmas. I created a mask and then stamped the mountain range several times using first and second generation impressions. I stamped the village using all three colours and then embossed an oval frame around the whole image. I finished the front with a simple sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat of pale peach and on the white panel added another small village, some snowflakes and a Christmas greeting.
I had lots of fun with this card and, as it's only one layer, it will be very easy to mail. For more inspiration with one-layer Christmas cards, check out the cards from the rest of the Team. See you soon.
