I stayed up wayyyy too late last night scopin' out blogs and I came across this very intriguing challenge blog at about 1 a.m. It's new in town...just started up....it will be very challenging each week but I am excited to give it a try!
It's called One Layer Christmas Card Challenge! My fellow DT member over at Merry Monday, Susan Joyce, is one of the Design Team members and I am so very excited for her! I have also designed with Vicki Dutcher and Vickie Yeakley - they have a very talented team at this blog....WTG ladies!
The whole time I was reading over the blog rules, admiring all the wonderful CAS designs the DT made, I was thinking "well...this is gonna be so awesome! Seriously....how hard could that be?! One layer - easy, peesy...stamp, stamp done!" hahahaa!! It wasn't so easy. I wrecked about 3 different cards trying to get a decent card out of it! LOL Yep...this is gonna be a challenge - and that's PERFECT!
I finally settled with this design and I love it! The twist to this challenge this week is RED so I started with my base of Cherry Cobbler and then heat embossed some white snowflakes (TAWS) and a clear embossed sentiment (Papertrey Ink). I love the WOW factor this card turned out to have!
I tried over and over to get a decent picture of this card (I am thinking it's time to set up a DECENT light station!) and I think this is the best one out of the bunch. I find that Cherry Cobbler is extremely hard to capture in it's true color form...it always turns to a different color of red when I take it's picture ....
Well, thank you for stopping in today! I am so happy that I got to make a card "just cause" and share it with you today. Think you got what it takes to whip up a "one layer Christmas beauty?" That's my challenge to you - come on over and support this new blog! Cheers!
