one layer wednesday : trees


I decided to have another bash at One Layer Wednesday, where the theme this week is Trees. As luck would have it I just got this fab set of christmas stamps from Crafty Individuals.

I still find one layer cards difficult as there is no room for mistakes (that's not to say there are no mistakes on this card. there are some!)

I stamped the tree with crushed olive distress ink and the star in barn door. I would say this would be good for quick christmas cards.... if it didn't take so darn long!

  8. Yes, it does look simple, but I totally understand the time it takes! (Of course, when I have to redo my card 3-4 times because I smear the ink it's gonna take time! LOL) Looks fabulous!
