Yes, folks! Christmas in February!
That's this weeks' challenge over at the Simplicity blog for One Layer Wednesday. And, here's what we have to do this week if we want to play along:
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half. No other layers allowed.
2. Make a Christmas (or Season's Greetings, if you prefer) card, but you must use green and red on white or cream. Feel free to be creative with the shades of green and red...you don't have to stay traditional. You can also use natural-style cardstock, watercolor paper, or textured paper as long as it's white or cream. Keep embellishments to a minimum. Extra points if you do like I did and use an image that isn't specifically holiday!
Well, I didn't have much to work with, since I don't have access to all my stamps...all I could come up with stamp-wise with a Christmas theme were my G Studio $1 stamps. Let's just say that not all $1 stamps are created equal, are certainly not in any way, shape or form as good as clear photopolymers made here in the good ol' USA, and truly do affect the end result. Truly an exercise in frustration, and after an entire afternoon of attempts and a full garbage can, came up with this:
Sorry, folks. This is my best effort for this week's challenge. It was either this or nothing. It was time to move on to something more rewarding.
Thanks, as always, for peeking!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
