One Layer Blossoms


Hi, I was inspired to make this card by a couple of challenges. At Less is More, the theme is to make a one layer card on a coloured base, no white, cream etc. At CASology, the code word is Bloom.

One layer cards are definitely a challenge for me!  I stamped and embossed this flower from  Annabelles Stamps Standing Tall set. The sentiment is from the same set,as is the little row of dots stamped at the base of the flowers.

 I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils but felt it needed something else. So I diecut a scallop on the edge of the card, just on the top section. My base is a Memory Box cherry blossom coloured card. They are white on the inside so this shows through the scallop cut.

Thanks for visiting :)
