One Layer Wednesday


I don't get to play along with this great challenge very often, but this week I wanted to make a special effort to support Susan in her gratitude campaign which I think is a fine idea.

So without further ado, here's my little offering.

I actually made two while I was at it.

I wanted to create the effect of a diecut but in one layer.  It almost worked.

I embossed the die into the card then die cut the same flower from a post-it and used both halves as masks to sponge the colour.  I did actually use a couple of Memento inks that are new, so Darnell, this is my first official NBUS post as well!

I like the technique but need to work on my sandwich as sadly it tore the card in a couple of places.  Never mind, you get the idea.

Enjoy the rest of your week.


  1. These are both stunning Pat, this technique is so pretty... shame you tore it ... you'll definitely have to have another go.... love them so much :0)

  2. Pat, thanks so much for supporting the newly named Thanksgiving Crusade with these two gorgeous cards! I love the colors here...so fresh and pretty, and what a great idea to emboss and mask for color!

  3. These are absolutely gorgeous!

    Best crafty wishes!
