I Dig You! One Layer Card

by Joanne James23. January 2014 20:07

I have another one layer card to share with you today; I sat down at my desk yesterday with the intention of making something completely different, but having finished the card that I blogged yesterday my head was still in the 'one layer' zone and I suddenly remembered an idea I had had a while ago, but not committed to paper. So I raided my Stampin' Write marker box and came up with the following quick, fun card:

This fun little shovel is from the 'Tag It' stamp set, a great stamp set with a mix of images suitable for a variety of occasions, and for which Stampin' Up! donates £2 from every set sold to Ronald McDonald House Charities. I started with the stamp on the right, which is the complete stamp including the 'I Dig You' sentiment, then worked back from right to left using my stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure perfect placement to create my rainbow of trowels. I wanted my red trowel to be the focal point, so in addition to including the sentiment, I inset it in a read dotted outline heart using the fine tip of my Real Red marker pen and my paper piercing template.

Another cute one layer card with a Valentine's theme - I think I'll link this one up with the challenge over at The Paper Players this week too. Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Oh my goodness, Joanne, this is darling!  Love those cute little shovels and the rainbow effect on the handles.  Sweet way to highlight the sentiment without adding layers--clever!  Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

So sweet, Joanne! I love your colorful row of shovels and the fun sentiment. I keep forgetting I have that stamp. Thanks for reminding me, and thanks so much for playing along with my challenge this week at The Paper Players!

Thanks Sandy - a great challenge this week! I forget I have this stamp too - yet it's a great set of versatile stamps, even for one layer cards.
