First Attempt at a One Layer Card

This fortnight's challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is to create a one layer card.

Well, for an embellishment addict like me, this challenge was soooooooooo hard.  My fingers were just itching to get stuck into my various tubs of pearls, gems, ribbons, flowers etc.

Without any layers of pretty papers, I felt that I needed to create some interest another way.  So I created a shaped card.

What do you think ... ?

I'm not sure that I will be rushing to make more one-layer cards as I think I'm going to need therapy to overcome the lack of embellies, but it's not too bad for a first attempt.

We're sponsored this fortnight by Simon Says Stamp and Robyn's Fetish so play along to be up for a chance to win some fab prizes.

I absolutely love it. And I know it's so hard not to embellish, but I also enjoy to create one layer cards time to time, because they are a real challenge. You did so well, I love it. Hugs! Mojca

I think you've definitely cracked it with the one layer card; I find they can look so "flat" but you've carried this off perfectly. Thank you for playing at Sweet Stampin' this week. Tracey x

This looks just superb Annette, and with such a gorgeous card with those warm colours... I don't even think you should be needing therapy.. but I feel for you.. Struggled big time with my card as well and I landed even simpler than I ever thought I would;) I absolutely love the colour choice and the diecut shape too. Have a lovely evening. Hugs Bettina xx
