One Layer Card

February 12th, 2011 · 1 Comment

One Layer Card
I hadn’t made a one layer card in a long time. When I saw the sketch spotlight challenge on StampTV (STVSKSP12) I couldn’t wait to try one with this layout. I embossed the lacey oval first on a kraft card, then added score lines with my MS score board. I covered up the area around the oval and sponged Faded Jeans distress ink through the Nestabilities die, then masked the oval with a scratch die-cut and used Tea Dye distress ink on the score lines and the edges of the card.

There you have it, nice and simple. A flat card that will not require any extra postage.

Thanks for stopping by!
