I don't know why it is, but I rarely seem to do one layer cards. I think part of it is that I was always afraid that the color would bleed through to the inside of the card, but it seems to be okay as long as I don't use Copics.
With that in mind, today I thought I'd pop outside my comfort zone and make a few one layer cards. The best thing is that they didn't take me long at all. Fair warning: one of these is a CHRISTMAS card!! I know, right? It's not even September yet, but there you go.
Card #1 - Stamp of Approval
I used one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Notes set and stamped them in rainbow color across the middle of a top-fold landscape card. I used the "Thanks" and "a Note to Say" sentiment from the same set and Voila! All done!
Card #2: Your Next Stamp
For this card, I folowed the above , but instead of a butterfly, I used my Thumb. Then I stamped one of the faces from YNS's Create a Character stamp set. I used the same sentiment from the SOA Butterfly Notes set. I didn't bother to color the eyes white, but you totally could.
Card #3: Stamp of Approval
And now the Christmas card! This one was done using the Wonderful Wreath set. I stamped the wreath three times, once in CtMH Champagne, then in Pear, and then Topiary. Basically, beige, then light green then dark green. I stamped some pine cones in brown and the berries and the ribbon in red. I wanted something to make in sparkle, so I dragged something from my stash that I hadn't used in a long time: Stickles! I coated everything that was red in Christmas Red Stickles. And that finished my card!
