This week's challenge is to make a ONE layer card! I can hear the moaning and groaning already, but isn't the idea of my challenges to take you outside the box? Some crafters make awesome one layer cards, and I struggle with them!! Frankly I struggle at making simple cards! I think I have to pile on the layers and embellies until the card looks "just right!!" But over on SCS, they are having an Holiday Extravaganza Challenge and one of the challenges is to make a one layer card. As I was working on mine I thought this would be an awesome challenge for the GCA! I still need to take a picture of my card, but I wanted to get this posted!
The "rules" are:
* One layer only!! This means the card base is your one layer!!
* You can use any kind of embellies or decorations you want, but just do not add any cardstock layers!!
* Your card can be any theme, EXCEPT Christmas related!! Think Spring/Valentines Day!!
* If your have the CB or Big Shot, or any embossing type of machine, these help to add depth and dimension to your one layered card.
To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a ONE LAYER card, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by January 2, 2009 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next day.
Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it!If you upload your card on SCS, or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA22(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 22) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!!
And to my ladies who are patiently waiting for stampin' goodies, they are on the way!!! Enjoy!!!
