Another One Layer Wonder

I had so much fun with the last "one layer" card I created that I had to try a more clean and simple design this time. I used stamps from Gina K. Designs and they are all from the Stamper's Favorites set by Melanie Muenchinger.


My card stock of choice this time was kraft and by taking a Spellbinder A2 Curved Matting Basics A die and aligning it just below the fold created the card base. I stamped the images in Gina K. Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I also took a texture brush tool that gives sort of a stippled look and added some brown ink around the colored images. My bling I added was originally clear and black rhinestones but I took my Copic markers and colored the clear ones to match the colors in my card. The bling is made by Want 2 Scrap.

By making this a Thinking of You type of card it allows me to use it for more than one occasion. I like to do that a lot.

This card will be also entered into this week's Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which we were to make one layer cards. 

Wow! Two cards in one day. And, I remember when I used to make several in one day but I guess I have slowed down and take more time to create a bit better or at least I hope that is the case. 

I hope all of you are having a fun filled day too! And, thanks for looking at my card creations and ramblings about them. I so appreciate it!

God bless,
Verna
