One Layer Card by Fran


I love watching You Tube videos and one of my favorite card makers is Kristin Werner.  I just love her style.  Not long ago she made a Birthday card that I fell in love with and I just had to scrap lift it.  My card by no means looks as good as her card but I think I did a fairly good job.  If you like to watch the video on how she made the card  you can view it here:

Friday Focus–Birthday Card # 8 by Kristin Werner

I never was one to use white dashed lines on my cards but I thought this one really screamed white dashed lines needed.  I went a little further and stamped the inside of the card to match the outside.  I thought it gave it a neat look.  And I like the idea of a one layer card.  So easy to mail too.  Details on my card are below my photos.  In addition, I did not have any white embossing powder so I used WOW Embossing Powder in a Clear Glitter.  So in order to balance out the glitter in the embossing powder I added Stickles Glitter Glue in Star Dust on some of the dots on the flower centers and on some of the small dots throughout the stamped design.  The white dashes balance out the white I used to color in the flowers.
