Susan, over at Simplicity has challenged us to make a one layer card using stamped images and/or sentiments.
NO extra cardstock
NO embellishments
NO masking
No sponging

CAS (clean and simple)

We could layer with ink.

On a folded white card I stamped the Reindeer in Barn Door distress ink.
The sentiment stamped next in black versafine ink.
This was surprisingly fun to do...so I made about 12 cards in a few minutes.
Some with a different sentiment.

Some I had to add a little bling

See the bling on the nose?

And then got carried away!

All stamps are from Darkroom Door 'Christmas Reindeer' set.


  1. I find CAS quite tricky - one layer CAS is really scarey!! I think you've done a fab job on these cards :) Just think how ahead of time you'll be for your Christmas cards this year!

  2. Fab cards Shirley, love his red nose on the last version:)

  3. Loved these cards - didn't love being reminded that Christmas is so close:)

  4. Gorgeous cards Shirley, & I have to agree with Fiona, CAS is a bit scary! but you've done a fantastic job, that's also my favourite Christmas go-to stamp set :)

  5. Great cards Shirl! You'll be ready for Christmas in no time, at this rate! xx
