One-Layer Kitty Card (Newton's Nook stamps)

Hello, everyone!  Today I've made the style of card I dread the most: a one-layer card!  They are the toughest! But you all know I love a challenge! I decided to ink up my Newton's Nook Winter Tails stamps to create a snowy scene!  I coloured Newton with my Prismacolor pencils.  I like to make at least two Christmas cards a month and this will be my second, so I'm right on track!


I used my Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil with embossing paste and white glitter to create the falling snow. You can't see it in the photo, but I applied the same white glitter all along the stamped snowdrifts.  I used double-sided tape along the side edges of the card and sprinkled on pale blue glitter.  I finished off my one-layer card with a silver snowflake and two sequins.  This card really sparkles in person!

Here are some fun challenges I would like to support:

  8. Are you prepared for a true confession? I do not own any Newton's Nook stamps. How can that be I do not know?! Anyway this is the sweetest card ever! It is fabulous and you don't even notice it is but one layer (they are so hard to make, imo). Love the sparkle and glitter!
