No Layers Cards

The Late Night Stampers' challenge this week is to make a no layer card-- meaning you can only use one piece of card stock.  I actually made two very, very similar cards and decided to show both of them.  I made two because I forgot to use my embossing buddy on the first one and therefore had stray embossing powder in places I didn't want it.
I started with very vanilla card stock on which I stamped leaves in versamark ink using the French Foliage stamp set.  After heat embossing the leaves and sentiment I sponged the entire card front with pumpkin pie ink.

This first card was the one I forgot to use the embossing buddy on.  It turned out ok after all.  I also intentionally sponged the ink on unevenly.

On this card I sponged the ink on more evenly over all.

Here you can see how thin the card is with no layers.
I really enjoyed making this card.  Just think how easy a card like this would be to mail with no layers to have to worry about.
Thanks for stopping by, and please leave me a comment,

  1. Very pretty cards...this leaf stamp set is on my wish-list. Shows very well how a single layer still has dimension. TFS!
