My fellow Crafty Critter challenged us to make a card with only one layer of paper. The trick, it had to have the illusion of layers.
This was a big challenge for me... I don't like cards that don't have a "face"... but being a good sport, I played along.
I used white as my base and created a faux edge around the card by making a frame using some strips of paper from my recycling bag! Layed the frame on the card and inked over top. I did it messy on purpose to match the "sketchy" feel of the dragonfly.
What you can't see on the card is I also embossed over the ink. I also used my Stampamajig from Stampin' Up to stamp the Happy Birthday in the Orchid Opulence ink and then restamped my versamark over it so I could emboss it as well. Sorry it doesn't show up - but provides a definite layer in person. I added some Prima Flowers and called it done.
Not my most favourite card, but I think it works for a one layer card!
