This challenge, hosted by Leah, consists of making a one-layer card. As if that would be easy or something...I don't know why it's so hard to do that sometimes--I suppose that little 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 canvas seems too blank. Here are two of mine:
The first one is just a simple wedding card--Everyday Classics flourish used twice, then heat embossed in silver. Sentiment is from Piece of Cake, done in black after the ampersand was embossed. Corners rounded.
This next card was a little more time-consuming. All the white is heat embossed, but I used a mask to make it look like the flowers and leaf are layered. (If you aren't familiar with masking, it's when you stamp your image onto a post-it note and cut it out. After stamping the image on your card, you place the post-it mask over it, then stamp the other image, so it overlaps without ruining your first image. Remove the post-it, and voila! Depth! Dimension! Make sense?) Okay, after all that, I colored the flowers with SU markers and used one of my all-time faves for the sentiment.
