This week I needed to play catch up and create some much needed Thank You cards. Time was running short so I wanted to stamp something that would be pretty but something that I could reproduce quickly. I decided to challenge myself to do a "No Layer" card. YIKES!!! This is something that is hard for me because I LOVE layers. You see it not only in how I stamp, but even in how I dress on a daily basis. I always use layers!
So for this challenge I picked up my favorite new stamp set, Botanical Blooms and this is what I came up with.
My favorite images in the set are the Monstera leaf and the Hibiscus flower. I see Hibiscus flowers on a daily basis all over the island here on Oahu. They come in many different colors. My favorite are the Hula Girl hibiscus, they are yellow and red. Here are some I passed the other day in a parking lot. I couldn't resist not taking a photo of them. This particular hibiscus color combination inspired the choice of colors for my card.
I was really happy with the outcome of this card. I was definitely stamping outside of my comfort zone stamping a card without layers. I love how easy it was and to top it off I didn't have to use ANY adhesive at all.
I highly recommend the Botanical Blooms stamp set and know that there will be endless color combinations that can be created using the beautiful flower images in this set.
I hope you are inspired to create a few No Layers cards of you own.
