Quick And Easy Single Layer Card: Hey Pumpkin

By | 08/26/2020

Every now and then, do you find that you need a quick card?

Every now and then I like to challenge myself to create a single layer card with lots of white space.  The Paper Craft Crew sketch for this week gave me a perfect opportunity to create a card with just a couple of stamps, some ink pads, a piece of card stock, and acrylic blocks.

    Hi Kim!
    I just caught up with your posts. I am impressed with all the different projects you have been crafting. The small journals that you made came out great. I have to try those digital images that you have been coloring. They are just so darn cute. All the areas that you add to them are amazing. Someday I will watch a video as you recommend. Can you clarify something for me?
    When a single layer card is mentioned does it mean you use just the card base or is the single layer the panel? I understand that nothing additional is added. I sometimes feel that just the card base ends up being a little flimsy.
    Thanks for your info. Hope you and your family are healthy and safe.

      Hi Anita!
      The journals and albums have been my favorite projects lately!
      As far a single layer card, you can do either. You can create your card directly on the card base or you can create it on a front panel and add it to a card base. I usually do the panel when I am watercoloring or using alcohol markers because they would bleed through the card front. If I’m entering a challenge, I will keep my single layer panels to the size of the front of the card. Every challenge had different rules about those things, so if you are entering a challenge just check the rules they have.
      Be well!
