Super Simple One Layer Wonders

If you are like most paper crafters, you believe MORE is BETTER- right?  Well a few weeks ago I took on a personal challenge to create only ONE LAYER style cards.  I have named them ONE LAYER WONDERS, and they are super rewarding to create.  Especially for someone that really likes those CAS type of cards (Clean And Simple).  I shared this card with you a few days ago…

Simple cards are so FUN and quick!

And I put together a few more styles for FUN.

A few simple techniques and simple card bases, equal FAB cards!

I found it a little harder than anticipated to create these cards with NO additional layers… so of course I had to add something to them, can you guess what it is??

Getting the most out of just a few ink colors is a FUN trick!

Of course I had to add a little sparkle to my cards, and although Dazzling Details would have made them more sparkly it would have caused the ink to bleed and that’s not the look I was going for. Plus the fact that the DD causes the card stock to warp, and that these are just one layer cards- it just wouldn’t work.

Using simple patterns and great sentiments make great cards.

I love all the possibilities and variations that can be used.

I thought that I would share a FUN and FREE tutorial with you.  I just love how simple it is to create these cards and I thought that you might like this too.  Challenge yourself to make it more simple, you will be amazed at how hard it is at first, LOL!!
