One-Layer Vintage Thank You


Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend!   I had a busy Friday & Saturday, and Sunday we had our church picnic, but the afternoon was leisurely and productive!  I did get a wee bit of stampin’ time in and made a one-layer card (which is a challenge in itself), for three challenges:  CASology wants vintage; Just Us Girls has a word challenge of “summer”; and As You See It wants one layer!   I needed a thank you card for a friend, so I pulled out some Artistic Outposts stamps, a Very Vanilla cardbase and went to work, doing some collage stamping:

I really wanted to add some layers, but I was determined to just use my stamps!  I stamped the images in Mint Macaron and Soft Sky, with an “oops” of Pool Party (pulled out the wrong ink pad!!).  I did add a wee bit of baker’s twine and did some sponging around the edges.  Stamps used were Boardwalk and A Lovely Day.  I added my sentiment  from SU’s Fabulous Four and some shells to the inside:


Thanks for stopping by today!

Slip & slide fun!
