Wahoo!! Is everyone enjoying the end of summer? I've been operating under the assumption that summer will last forever, so I haven't done any back-to-school shopping for the kids....I'm in denial. BUT, today I'm totally excited to be bringing you a card for the most excellent Lawnscaping Challenges: a one layer card.
This challenge is sponsored by the ever-so-awesome Simon Says Stamp, who is gifting the Queen of Green with a $25 credit to their store! Suh-weet!
One layer cards can be quite a challenge: no embellishments, twine, or fun patterned papers, so you have find creative ways to keep it interesting. I was going to go the route of creating a little scene with lots of masking, but I had been dying to play with my Distress Inks and was inspired by a video by Kristina Werner in Summer Card Camp 2, so I went ahead and made a Distress Ink background, used a simple sentiment stamp, and mimicked the stamp with my faux stitched border. Then I used my hearts Lawn Cuts dies to cut out little hearts on the card. I feel like there's still lots to look at even though it's one layer!
