One layer.

Do you ever make 1 layer cards?  Do you find it easy?  I find it pretty difficult to created enough interest on a card with no layers - I think my foam squares were feeling a bit put out that they stayed in their drawer for this one :)  But they call them "challenges" for a reason, right?  And it's the new one over at the lawnscaping blog.

I have to admit that I planned this one out completely in my head before I ever put ink to paper.  I stamped the banner and the cat images and then created masks for them so that I could stamped the word "meow" repeatedly in shades of grey.  The sentiment and envelope pattern background in pink, and it's one cool & girly card.  (My husband did question the coolness of it, but what does he know about cards, really.)

Supply list
stamps: (lawn fawn) bannerific, critters in the 'burbs, smitty's abcs, (hero arts) envelope pattern background
paper: (PTI) grid lines cardstock
ink: memento black, (SU) basic grey, going grey, blushing bride, various copics


  1. Oh my! I am amazed at this card!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT! Love the colors.... Love the envelope pattern background (love that stamp) and your masking... This is just absolutely FANTASTIC and wonderful for a one layer card! Amazing actually you were able to capture such dimension on a one layer card! GREAT JOB with this challenge!!!!! :)

  2. What does a husband know about cards, anyway. This is one cool card. Love how interesting you were able to make it using only one layer.

  3. Super cute and "cool" - Love your kitty and the meow sentiment

  4. i love it! i love the way you've masked so many different pieces...your husband's cool-o-meter be broke! ;)
