one layer wednesday

edited to add: If I had read the fine print I also would have noticed that we were supposed to have used more than 1 sentiment! Oops!

I don't know for sure if this counts, but I made this for Simplicity's One Layer Wednesday challenge.

The reason I say that is because it was to be sentiments only, no images. Technically, this isn't a stamped image. :D

I used 2 different sized hearts dies by spellbinders and used the negative space to lay over the base and stamp. Only problem is, on the first one, I meant to have the smaller heart overlap the bigger heart. I masked in the wrong order. Ooops!

Oh well, I think it turned out OK anyway. It looked a little lost with no border so I put some white faux stitching around the edges so the hearts were a little more apparent.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day! :)

p.s. the inks are actually a pink & a red, hard to tell in the photo. If you click on the image to see closer you might be able to tell.

  4. VERY cool and certainly it counts...if you put a sentiment on the inside. No need to mess up the perfection of the outside of the card!
