One layer!?! Only one layer? Okay, I have to admit this was a tough challenge for me. I love layers and layers and layers. I almost always have to put two postage stamps on my cards when I mail them.
This is a f-l-a-t card. But, I love it how it turned out.
First, I used a Spellbinders' label die to cut a masking-label out of thin copy paper. I temporarily taped it to the front of the blue card base. (I cut two pieces of double-stick tape and taped them first to the back of my hand to take some of the stickiness away. Then, I removed them and used them to hold the masking-label in place.) Next, using ODBD's Birch Background #D213, I stamped the birch trees. Afterward, I removed the masking-label and discarded it. I stamped the sentiment in the blank spot left by the label. The sentiment is also ODBD. It's from the Earth Verses collection #F494.
There you go. A flat card from me. I might have to make more flat, one-layer cards. There is still time to join us if you have your own one-layer card idea. Check out the details here: http://www.ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/2014/06/odbdslc207-one-layer-cards.html
