Designer Series: Ornaments + Toys with Nichol Magouirk (and a video!)

It's Nichol Magouirk here today to share a new card created with the Remember December Stamp Set. I love the simplicity of single layer cards and the adorable text circles in this stamp set lend themselves to creating perfect hanging "ornaments" on this easy-to-create card.

When I'm creating a single layer card, I like to add small touches with glaze or glitter pens for a dimensional look and texture without any bulk of additional embellishments. This also makes this an easy to duplicate card if you have a lot to make!

Here's a quick video I put together showing how I created my card:


I also have a new card share featuring the Toy Shop Stamp Set. To be honest, this card was a struggle for me. I made about 8 different versions and this is the one I ended up going with. It's not my favorite card ever but that happens to everyone, right? ;)

I embossed the images with gold embossing powder and adorned the toy store with gems, sequins and a paper bow made with the Mama Elephant Dainty Bow Creative Cuts. I die cut and matted the whole thing using the ME Femme Frames.

  2. Your one layer ornament card is so festive and fun. The glitter pen is a nice touch. The photo corners on the second card help make the embossing pop. Love the sequins and the little bow.
