OLCCC - Optional Twist: Candles

The OLCC Challenge is to create a one layer Christmas card.  It is always anything goes with an optional twist.  The twist for this challenge is Candles.

For my card, I used the Stampin' Up Canvas background stamp on vanilla cardstock.  The candle is Penny Black Xmas Light.  I colored the image direct to stamp using waterbased markers and then stamping the image onto the card base.  The edges were sponged using distress ink and the candle glow was sponged using SU So Saffron ink.

We hope you will share your one layer Christmas cards with us.  You can find the OLCC challenge HERE.


  1. Love the textured background! Fabulous vintage feel to this!

  2. Love the vintage feel with that candle....it's gorgeous, and so quintessentially 'Christmas'. Classic:):)
