One Layer Wednesday 75
Today I decided to try the one layer challenge over at Susan's Simplicity blog, http://simplicitybylateblossom.blogspot.com/ . I've admired her work ever since I discovered her blog a few months ago. I like Susan's simple yet elegant style. I do like to add layers to my cards, but most of the time, my goal in card making is to keep the card flat enough to fit in an A2 envelope and not have to pay extra postage. There's a background story to go with this which I promise to share sometime when it isn't so late. Anyway. . .
Today I decided to use an embossing folder by Cuttlebug, and that's about it. I used soft suede cardstock and early expresso ink and was finished in less than 5 minutes. When I showed the card to my husband, he thought it needed a little bit more. I added a little bit of sponging and came up with card number 2. Which one do you like better?
By the way, I was so happy to be the winner of the blog give away on Simplicity that I felt like I needed to show that I really do use my Cuttlebug folders. Love them!
