This was supposed to be a one-layer card I was making for a challenge but unfortunately I placed the mask on the card base wonkily and the card looked as if it had been made under the influence of strong spirits! But I loved the mask, which I made by folding a piece of scrap paper into four, cutting with the decorative label punch and then opening it out. And the sponged garden was rather pretty. I thought it was a shame to waste it.
I love making one-layer cards but there's no denying that they don't always go according to plan! The good news though is that when they don't, you just turn them into layered cards! Cutting the sponged image out straight and mounting it onto Basic Grey card stock was easy and I even found one of my vellum butterflies in my snippets box which made itself quite at home on the card!
All it needed now was a sentiment to match the butterfly (two sentiments, two markers and a stamp-a-majig took care of that!) and mounting on a Whisper White card base. And I actually prefer the final card to the one I'd had in my head first time around! I hope this post has encouraged you not only to try one-layer cards but also to use the ones that don't work out!
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Baby Blossoms, All a Flutter, Just Believe and Thank You Kindly (sentiment)
Ink: Always Artichoke, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point, Soft Suede, stazon black
Card stock: Whisper White, Naturals Ivory, Basic Grey, Vellum
Other: Decorative label punch, markers, stamp-a-majig
