Three One-Layer Cards

DSCF6541

The challenge#3 at Stampin’ Royalty today is to make a one-layer card.  That is more difficult than I imagined! I actually did make a set of four one-layer cards yesterday, but I did not photograph them and wanted to do something a little different today.  So I made three!! The first one was not so good, but the second & third were better!  I think it’s because they have ribbon—other than that, they are all pretty clean & simple.  Okay, enough yakking, here ya go:

This is number three.  (I am going backwards here!)  I anchored the ribbon by doing a one-hole bow.  Image is from Holiday Blitz; colors are Real Red, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose and Rose Red; sentiment is from The More the Merrier.

Here’s number two, a REAL simple one:

Card is Pretty in Pink, cut with the Scallop Square BigShot Diecut; again, the image is from Holiday Blitz, stamped in Craft White and embossed with white EP. The little CB cross stitch folder is one I’ve had for a long time!  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the ribbon is SU’s Satin ---yummeeee!

Finally, this was my first attempt.  I should have stopped stamping while I was ahead:

It just looks BARE, but I do like the white on the BB.  Sets used are Always and Enjoy Every Moment; card and ink are Bermuda Bay, with the bird and sentiment again stamped in Craft White and heat embossed.  A good exercise to get back to basics!  Oh well, you can’t win them all!

Holy scrumptious stamping, Batman! These cards ROCK, LeAnne! I REALLY can relate to how difficult it can be to limit your creativity like this, but you did some awesome work, my friend! Yee HAW!

Adorable, LeAnne! I love that little embossing square you used on the baby card. I have that folder and I totally forgot about it. It must be totally buried in my drawer. I need to get it out!

Ann said...

All are wonderful! I really love the last one...been itching to use that set again lately!

Sandra Farrell said...

Wow LeAnne. These are sooooooooooo great. It seems that lots of us made a few before we were happy with them.

Tina G said...

Great cards. I like them all.

Juanita said...

Super work on the One-Layers. These are all out standing.

They are very pretty! I wish I was better at making one layer cards...but I too get caught up in thinking they are too bare. I love yours though!

These are so pretty! I find it most difficult to make one layer cards, but you've pulled it off quite well with this trio of lovely cards!

Awesome cards, LeAnne! I LOVE the baby card with that embossed square! I have had those mini CB folders for years too, and never have a good idea for using them! Thanks for the inspiration!
