It’s been ages since I made a one layer card so this is a good challenge from Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge. When was the last time I created a one layer card, LOL? I created this card:
The challenge was a one layer so I took some painters tape and gently put it down so it would come off without ripping the paper. Doing this was inspired by two of the samples (Heather and Jenn’s) posted on the SSS Wednesday blog, I took some Tim Holtz distressing inks, sponges, and created the ombre background.
Using black Memento ink, I used the super cute stamp set CTMH has designed for the raising money($7.00 of every set purchased, is donated to Operation Smile) this month for Operation Smile “Sharing the Love” CC1060, to stamp the camera, dialog box, and a sentiment.
I stamped them over the background, working diagonally across the card, opposite of the background diagonal. The camera is centered.
I used one of my favorite embellishments, Purple Enameled and Glitter Heart Duos, taking one of the glitter hearts to add a little bling to the heart on the camera.
I had a blank corner (not necessarily a bad thing but it was not looking balanced to me) so I added the sentiment in the corner:
This was a fun card to do and reminds me that simple, as in one layer, is often best and it looks great! Thanks for stopping by!
