My first Single Layer... almost?

This month for club, I challenged myself to do simple cards, including my first single layer card (assuming one layer of DSP on the card base counts?), since the old days when all I had was some Stampin' Spots, cardstock and a few stamps ;) I ended up with both cards not using the Big Shot at all... amazing, but true!

This is my "single layer" card... I stamped the Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade with clear blocks. Then after drying completely and using the embossing buddy, I stamped the Thank You with Versamark, (seriously, our poly stamps are AMAZING!!! I've NEVER gotten an image this crisp with a clear stamp from any other company!), and then used the Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. Last step was a few pearls... so simple, but still has lots of depth.

Challenges I used:

Clean and Simple - (see sketch below)
The Paper Players - Tic Tac Toe (Thank You, Embossing, Pearls AND Patterned Paper, Embossing, Any Shade of Blue)
Word Art Wednesday - Praise the Lord


  1. Love the subtle vertical stripes and the bold sentiment. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

  2. Very fun card!! Love all the different textures on one layer!

  3. You are right. That is one clear but lovely image.
    This is beautiful. We thank God for you and hope to see you again next week.
