Today I am trying a one layer card based on the One Layer Wednesday challenge at Simplicity. These are the rules for this week’s challenge OLW78:
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single sheet of card stock folded in half. No other layers of card stock allowed!
2. Use at least FIVE circles on your card. If you feel so inclined, one of them can be the card base itself, but do NOT use punched or die cut circles!
When you think of circles, there are a lot more around than you would usually think about. Polka Dots are circles too. So my card well and truly has more than five circles.
To start with, I punched a frame on a piece of scrap card using the Curly Label Punch. I then put it over my Whisper White card base and sponged Certainly Celery ink in the frame. I then made a pattern with some of the stamps from the Itty Bitty Bits set and stamped them in the frame.
So, my first and third rows have a butterfly, a heart and a star each surrounded by a circle of polka dots. The middle row consists of three flowers. Each of these flowers has a circle in the middle and if you look closely, you will also see a circle of polka dots in each of the first two flowers and four rows of polka dots going out from the middle circle in the third flower.
To complete the picture, I punched a 1″ circle in the bottom right hand corner of the card,and on the inside, I have stamped another flower [which has a polka dots circle and another circle], and the Hello sentiment [which of course also includes a circle with the letter o].
