Can you believe that sometimes I forget to show you a card that I've made? It's crazy isn't it? I found this little cutie in a draft in blogger while searching for something else. Normally I change the "post date" so that when I save something as a draft it's always at the very top of the list but for some reason I must have forgotten with this card. I actually made this card last summer and was excited to show it off because I accomplished something I can't do very well...make a one layer card! If y'all know me at all you know I'm all about the layers! Every once in a while I like to take a step out of my comfort zone and create a card using a technique or style that I'm not comfortable with. This card is one of those creations!
I pulled out a couple of border stamps and a few individual stamps to make some mock layers....
I started off by stamping the scallop border near the top of my card base then stamping the pretty border from the Spring Garden 1 set. Now that I had a "layer" made for the focal point of my card I filled in the "base layer" using the little Mini Butterfly stamp to make a faux patterned paper on both ends of the card. With that done it was time for my focal panel, I used one of the butterflies from the Fancy Flutters set to make it look like I had butterflies sweeping up the card. I then added a sentiment (one of my FAVES!) and one of the little accent stamps from the Spring Garden 1 set. To finish it all off I simply colored in my butterflies and added LOTS of glitter.
Well that's it for me today, I hope you like my little one layer card and I hope you challenge yourself to step out of your box and take on a technique or style that you struggle with too!
