One-Layer Wednesday #5

I know, it’s Sunday, not Wednesday, but today was the first time I had some free time to do Susan’s one-layer challenge!  You can find it here; it was to use faux embellishments.  I really don’t have anything “faux” except buttons, and I really didn’t want to make my usual Sunday Christmas card  with buttons.  I thought about my JUGS project and the Waltzingmouse set I used, which looks like the images have all been appliqued with a blanket stitch, so I thought I would go with that:


Pretty basic; the cardstock is textured Very Vanilla; stamps are inked in Memento black and colored with Copics!  There is a little gold “brad” embellishment made with a Zig Painty pen!  As usual, despite my best intents, my sentiment is crooked (sigh).  Hopefully the recipient won’t notice! :D


  • Stamps:  Sewing Box Christmas, WM
  • Paper:  Textured VV
  • Ink:  Memento, Rose Red
  • Acc:  Copics, Painty Pen

Are you sure you didn't sew this? It really looks like real stitches. Very pretty card.

I'm really beginning to love the one-layer look on cards, and this one is perfect! Love that all the ornaments look stitched! Cute!

Cute card!! This looks like a fun challenge- need to check it out. I'm into simplicity now a days! And I must confess after looking at your sentiment it doesn't look crooked to me - maybe I need to look at it sideways : )
