One Layer Cards – Today’s challenge is brought to us by Barbara Anders and here is what Barbara says: I’m challenging everyone to make a one layer card. That means only the card base–not the base + one other layer–no layers allowed, LOL! Embellish however you want–ribbon, buttons, bling, scoring–anything goes, but no layers. Sounds fun, Barbara — can’t wait to try this and anxious to see what everyone does!
Anyone is welcome and invited to play! SCS Keyword is ssnotime151 for those who upload at SCS. There is no time limit. You can play this challenge anytime at all. The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!!

And today I have a very quick and easy card one layer card to show you:
For my one layer card I embossed the upper portion of plain white cardstock with a Cuttlebug Folder (turned sideways to only emboss the upper portion), used a simple sentiment on the lower right, wrapped around a ribbon, tied it with 1/8″ silk so the tails stuck out like leaves, added a lace flower and called it done!
Items used from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store:
Stamp: Heart Sing by Wordsworth
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
Thanks so much for stopping in again today. Hope you can find some time to try a One Layer Card — not my usual style, but it was fun to give it a try!!! We’ve just returned from a mini two-day vacation and it’s always so good to get home — LOL!!! Fun to go, but always good to get home, too! Now, to try to get caught up again!!!
Here’s a few things of interest to watch for:
Deb Saaranen is feeling really generous this month. She’s purchased 4 of the Stamp Simply KITS to give away as Blog Candy — one each week during the month of August. Check out the details over at Deb’s Blog.
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store DT will be having their monthly Blog Hop on Tuesday, 8/10, so I hope you can plan to stop in for that!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!
