One Layer Winter Card with Concord & 9th

Concord and 9th happy winter 1

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all well and staying safe in these trying times. Those of you dealing with kids back in school I wish you all the best for whatever situation you are faced with.

I have a one layer card for you today. These haven’t always been easy for me to do and sometimes I still struggle with them but today’s card came together pretty easy.

I started with stamping the image a little off to the right making sure to leave enough space on the left for my ‘patterned paper.’ I used the distress oxide minis to create my paper. I chose 6 colors – 3 blues and 3 greens – and pressed the cube onto the paper and dragged it off the edge. Once I filled up the side I stamped the little images on top.

Next I grabbed a blender pen and coloured in the image with the same colors in the ‘paper’ and a few more.
I chose to use a bigger sentiment because it balances well with the larger image on my card and to help ground the image.

A few tips for one layer cards:
– use one larger image
– if using smaller images cluster them together
– keep the colors simple (I did use quite a few but they were all shades of each other so that helps to keep it simple)
– larger sentiments work well with large images
– smaller sentiments work well with smaller images.

I hope this tips make sense and help you if you struggle with one layer cards.

Happy Stampin’
