I made the following cards for Less is More's challenge 19...to make a one layer card with a frame on it.I really need to look a bit closer when reading challenges. I read the framed part of this challenge and didn't see the one layer...so I made a couple cards over the weekend with frames, but both were a couple layers thick...and just as I was getting ready to upload, I READ the challenge...oh well, more cards for me:)!! I just couldn't stop at one...had a bunch of ideas running through my head...and having had no mojo for the last week...when ideas run...I run with them:)!!
I made the yellow and blue cards with cardstock from A Muse Stamps. The unusual thing and in this case really cool thing, is that the paper is one-sided color. When I cut the paper and stamped on the colored side, I cut the frame out and stamped on the inside of the card, which was the other side of the colored cardstock...white...perfect for what I had in mind. I know, the first looks like a bumble bee or school bus...but I like the bright yellow. I dotted the trees with black Enamel Accents and used baker's twine. The second is cobalt blue...stamped frame, cut out and stamped silhouette on inside. Added sentiment on outside on this one:
The details are below...thanks so much for looking, I will have to spend the rest of the week getting to the cards in the gallery...that's a whole 'nother challenge:)!! What fun this all is...loving it...loving the challenges and the wonderful community of stampers!!!...
