One Layer Cards

One of my favorite things about Practical Scrappers is that we are a place that embraces and showcases all the different styles of papercrafting that we can find.  I love to look at layouts and cards that are totally not my style, but still an incredible piece of art.  Clean and Simple (CAS) has really been exploding in popularity lately.  Today we're going to be showcasing one layer cards (a card that has no additional layers - everything is attached to the original cardstock).  There are no hard and fast rules on this, just a general guideline.  I think you will enjoy seeing that even in this style of card making - it is not always CAS.  I challenged our designers to really give this one a whirl (this was a first attempt for most of them) and here is some of the cards they came up with.

Practical Scrapper Teresa

Practical Scrapper Brenda B created this two cards.

Practical Scrapper Fern created this one using four stamps and a masking technique

Pia created two sets of cards - the first is invitations and the second is another invitation.  Either way her son is going to have some cute invitations!

Practical Scrapper Audrey created these three sets of cards.  Aren't those little feet adorable?

Oh I love how simple, but so beautiful these cards are... Often it is too easy to get caught up in all the bells & whistles! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
