Last month I participated in a swap with an online group. Fun ladies, and so very talented! The challenge was to create a card using just ONE LAYER. Hmmm! Sounded like fun...but wasn't quite as easy as I had thought it would be....but, I persevered, and this is what I came up with.
As you can see, the card is Whisper White and the bottom portion of the cardfront was impressed with the Perfect Polka Dots EF. Next, I stamped the trees from Trendy Trees...hadn't used that one in a long time! Happy to say, that it's in the new catalog. Next, I created a rectangular mask from scrap paper and sponged over the trees and then outlined with a Early Espresso Marker. The greeting was added and then the ribbon.
What do you think? For a simple card with no layers, it has a lot going on, don't you think?!! Why not try making a one-layer card today?...and don't forget to share!
