One Layer Card

Hi everyone,

Trust your weekend is going well so far. Had some sun in Brisbane today but more rain predicted for next week. We do need it though so shouldn't really complain.

Well one of the challenges i am entering this week is "One Layer" which is basically your card blank and any stamped or printed image with minimal embellishment. I have to say they are a little trickier than they look but it did give me the perfect opportunity to play around with my digital stamps and papers.

I took my digital paper and overlayed the digital stamp on top but felt it needed something a little more and decided to add a frame in to the mix. I picked a digital frame from my collection and then re sized the image and played around until i had it in the position i wanted. I left the inside of the image white and made the rest of the background clear so you could see the frame and paper behind. I took the paper and overlaid the framed image and it looked a lot better.

i then copied the completed layered image into word and re sized the whole thing slighting and positioned it on my paper, remembering to turn the image upside down as i am going to fold the card in half to make my card. I then trimmed the paper down to the size i wanted and leaving a decent sized white border. The folded the card in half.

I coloured the image with Copics and Sakura Gelly rolls as i wanted to add a little sparkle without any additional embellishments.

Here is my completed card...
