Language of Love One Layer Card

by Joanne James16. January 2014 14:48

Good day blog readers - I'm back today with a one-layer card! I haven't made a truly one layered card in a while, as I like to frame and layer when I make cards. That said, one layer cards are post-friendly and great if you are sending mail abroad, when weight is more of an issue. They also offer a great design challenge for those of us who don't often design in this way and it can be kind of liberating to design on just one sheet of card stock.

I follow the 'Less is More' blog as it's a great source of inspiration, particularly for one layer cards. This week's Less is More challenge is to create a one layer card with the theme 'Hearts'(week 154), so following a few days reprieve I'm back on the love theme today so that I can join in - here's my card:

We received the 'Language of Love' set free at Stampin' Up! Convention and it was out on my desk for another project I am working on, so thought I would use it to create this card. I started by positioning and stamping the large heart, then using a mask made from a post-it note using a heart framelit, I positioned this over my stamped image and stamped the rows of smaller hearts around it. I stamped each row in alternating colours and moved the stamp one 'heart' space along each time to create added design interest, allowing them to 'fade' into the masked area so that I retained the heart-shaped space around my focal image. I love the main stamp here - when you say 'love' in so many different ways, no other sentiment is needed!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
