Clean & Simple Card Making - Day 2

Day 2 of Clean & Simple Cards was to create a One Layer Card or Perfectly Flat Card.  In my early years of card making those were the only kind of cards I made.  I had forgotten the simplicity of a OLC, of course cards of the past lacked the amazing colours of cards today.  I broke out my Mehndi Medallion to create my card, I stamped it once in Broken China, masked it with a 2 1/2" circle and stamped again in Faded Jeans both Ranger Distress Inks.  I finished it off with a simple 'Merci', you can never have enough thank you cards.

All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White
Stamps:  Mehndi Medallion, Think Big Favorites #3
Ink: Broken China, Faded Jeans (Ranger), Tuxedo Black (Memento)

  1. This is so pretty. I've been toying around in my mind about using this set for a OLC. Now, I will do it for sure! The hearts embossing folder you asked about--it is Sizzix, and I believe it came in a set with two other small folders, and I got it at Michaels (w/coupon) last year.

  2. Marvelous CAS card Tracey! I used to make the OLC all of the time too; for some reason they're harder now! GO FIGURE ;) But you nailed this one...pretty!

  3. Tracey, this card is amazing!! i LOVE it! i have had my eye on these stamps for awhile now and you have just tipped me ovre the edge--heading off to buy htem!!!!

  4. A beautiful one-layer card. ;-) Love the Mehndi Medallions with the Merci sentiment. Very lovely. ;-)

  5. Nice variation on the original sketch. Love the medallions!
