ONE LAYER CARD
Specifically, the challenge is to use "two" of something.
I started down an entirely different path, but I just couldn't make that card look like the mental image that I had. I couldn't find a sentiment that worked - but, while paging through my Christmas stamp index for the tenth time, I saw this reindeer, imagined the card, and I am so glad that I went through the initial frustration - because I am really happy with the results!
I just love the "smile" on this guy. The stamp is a single reindeer which I stamped twice. The sentiment is actually three "jingles" but I masked off one of them.
Now...here's the card that gave me trouble. I don't dislike the idea, but I had a vivid mental image of a sentiment to the right that said "Joyful, Joyful" (to go with the seeing double theme!) and, not only didn't I have a sentiment like that, I just didn't have any sentiment that was the right shape and message. (I actually went so far as to cut up another sentiment that included the word "joyful" within it so that I could stamp it twice, but it was just a boring font and did nothing for the card.)
I stuck this sentiment in as it was the best that I could find. But at this point, I was frustrated so it's not embossed well and is a little hard to read.
I hope you are all having fun "seeing double"!
