Another One Layer Card...

Yeah! I was selected for an Honorable Mention in last weeks challenge for window cards! It is always an honor to be selected as there are so many fantastic artists submitting to each challenge.

Here is another one layer card for the Hero Arts Challenge... It is really fun to sit and think about how to recreate a design with masking instead of paper layers. Althought I really do miss the actual physical layers you would find on the card from a texture perspective.

I used a circle and scalloped circle punch to mask for the effect seen above. I also cut along the edges of the scallop using an exacto knife to pull the ribbon under.

The bottom border is a stamp from hero arts which I cut around and I sponged on the inside with a brown ink to match the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by... Oh and that snow almost all melted away.. Just the piles from the snow plow are left. Spring is coming.. Yeah! We can see the tulip leaves peaking out of the ground determined to come even after sitting under another 7 inches of snow for a few days!



  1. Congrats on your honorable mention! When I read the title "one layer card" I though, what is she talking about? That's more than one layer. Then after reading your description and seeing how you masked and cut slits to feed the ribbon through I realized you weren't fibbin'. How very clever you are! This is very pretty.

  2. Congratulations girl!!!!!
