CHNC challenge 33: simply Christmas

It's time for another challenge on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge blog and this time for challenge 33 I'm asking for cards with one layer or at least for them to be kept clean and simple. I usually rely quite heavily on using patterned paper on my cards, but recently I've been making quite a few 'clean and simple' cards and even 'one layer' ones.

For my card I've used a large PM stamp 'bauble decoration' - I inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold. As this is a large stamp I made a 7 x 5 card blank to use landscape. The strip across the top is a piece of double sided tape covered with detail gold embossing powder and heated.

When I have my sale to raise money for Tearfund I usually make up some packs of five cards so I think I'll be making some more of these.

I'm linking this for:

Ooh-la-la 86: oh Christmas!
Fab n funky 85: it's Christmas
Cards for men 16: clean & simple - I think this would be suitable to send to a man
Freshly brewed 59: clean and simple using less than 3 embellishments
Crafty catz 95: emboss it
