One Layer Card

This has been a pretty quiet week. I found some time to actually get in my craft room for some much needed cleaning. I didn't make a whole lot of headway, but at least the path is wider now. I still didn't get time to do any stamping, so I thought I'd share a one layer card that I did last year. I really like this card. It was easy and really sparkles with the dazzling diamonds on the snowflakes and the embossed greeting. Sometimes one layer cards can be a challenge, but can be just as beautiful as those that have multiple layers and take hours to complete.

I hope you enjoy this card and challenge yourself to create a one layer one also.

Split Negative

Well, I haven't had much time for stamping or scrapbooking lately, but I wanted to share a card that I did in the past with you.

This is the split negative technique. It's really easy to do. You emboss on colored cardstock with white ink and on white cardstock with your choice of color. This can be using either colored embossing powder or colored SU Craft ink and clear embossing powder. Once the embossing has been done both images need to be cut in exactly the same spot. In this instance, the tree was cut on the diagonal. You could also cut perpendicular or paralell through the middle of the tree. When you have the two parts, line them up so they match - use double sided tape on the back to keep them together - mount on a matching piece of cardstock and finish your card as desired.

It's that easy! Hope you enjoy this technique.



We had family pictures made this past weekend and I just had to share my grandbabies with you. Haylee is 13 months old and Isabelle is 4 1/2 months old. They are both so adorable. Don't you agree?

Haylee was more interested in the toys than the camera and Isabelle was more interested in Haylee. We had lots of fun laughing at the girls - not to mention laughing at the funny adults trying to make the little girls laugh! All in all, we got some good pictures.
