Secret Crafters - One Layer Cards


Good Morning & a happy weekend to you all. Hope everyone is feeling fighting fit & raring to go. I myself am feeling a bit grotty, hence this being a bit late. But I won't let that spoil the weekend. It's what I live for, LOL!
Lovely Helen has chosen our theme at Secret Crafters this week. It's,
ONE LAYER CARDS


I have to confess one layer cards scare me a bit. Not because I lack inspiration, but I don't know what paper to use. I don't have any card stock that carries my Distress Inks very well other than the paper I normally use which is a bit expensive for creating a whole card with. The paper I use for my Promarkers is too thin to fold into a card & other card stock bleeds too much. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

However, this stamp is by IndigoBlu & for a one layer card it turned out rather 3 dimensional! I decided to 3-D the main flowers & covered them with Sepia Glossy Accents sprinkled with a little glitter. I also played about with some Distress Stickles, pearls & obviously the button! I can't decide if I actually like it or not!

My fellow D-Teamies at Secret Crafters have created lots of gorgeousness for your delectation. I hope you'll hop on over & check them out.

I am also entering this at Cute Card Thursday  & Creative Inspirations where this week, 'Anything Goes'.

At the Bearly Mine Challenge, they want us to 'button it up'.

So there you go for now. I'm off to tackle the boys bedroom. I'm hoping to throw lots of things out, if they let me! What is everyone else up to? Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs to one & all,
Andie xx
