The above little one-layer valentine was entered into this week’s challenge over at “Less is More, A Clean and Simple Challenge Blog”. A One Layer Card (OLC) is defined on the blog as, “One piece of card folded in half with no additional layers and minimal embellishments, where the image is stamped or printed directly onto the cardstock.” Already, QUITE the challenge for me. I’m always using dimension and layers to create cards and projects. I couldn’t resist the challenge, though, as the challenge theme prompt this week was HEARTS. If you want to participate this week or find some OLC heart inspiration, here’s a link to this week’s challenge: http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2014/01/week-154-olc-hearts.html.
YOU Rule Valentine One-Layer Card
#546 Alice in Wonderland Queen of Hearts Digital Stamp from The Stamping Boutique. This image was colored digitally using Digital Project Life’s Girl Theme Pack colors in Photoshop Elements. The digital stamp was placed in the middle of a 4-x-6-inch journal card from the Girl Theme Pack mentioned above which is available NOW at Digital Project Life.
This digital stamp is only $3.25 and because it’s digital, you don’t pay for shipping and you get it FAST! Clicking on the image below will take you directly to the product page at The Stamping Boutique.
The journal card with digital stamp was then placed on top of the card base which was filled with patterned paper from the Midnight Edition of Digital Project Life Paper Pack in Silhouette Studio. The font to make the sentiment was purchased through the Silhouette Online Store. This card was then printed and cut using Staple’s matte photo paper which is an awesome weight of paper, by the way for this OLC. This same photo paper is printable on both sides, so there’s no watermark or manufacturer print on the other side. The black Silhouette pen was used in the machine to make the outer black border.
VOILA! No fuss, Done—a one-layer card.
