One Layer Cards

Today I did the 'one layer cards' class of the Online Card Class course I am taking. I learnt a few techniques and then had a play to see what I could come up with it.

I decided to do a card inspired by this photo on Jay Gee's Nook challenge blog:

I just loved this photo when I saw it and, although the sparkle gem teeth really stand out, what caught my eye was the wooden medallion over the bed in the photo on the left top corner. I knew immediately that I wanted to make a card using my Mehndi Medallion stamp from PTI . This is what I came up with-inspired by the photo and using what I had learnt in the class:

And as I also used the 'Big and Bold' sentiment set from PTI I am going to enter again into the challenge at A Passion for Papertrey -they are being nice to us for the next 2 weeks with a 'anything goes' challenge and as so many of my products are from Papertrey I may well enter a third time!!

Fri-Eve is here so we are nearly hitting the weekend. Hope you have lots of plans......mine unfortunately include defrosting the freezer and supermarket shopping but I am going for a walk with a friend on Sunday, so not all bad.

Hubby is now stuck on the very sweaty London tube and is going to be super late so I am off to chill in the bath.....have a good evening crafty friends x


  1. This is lovely Sandie. Great take on the photo and I love the colours you have used. Thanks so much for joining us at Jay Gee's :)

  2. Baseball is in our plans for tomorrow night! And a nice dinner out just got added to Saturday night with Pat's brother/wife. Looking forward to an adult night :)

    Don't you love that medallion set. So beautiful!

  3. Fantastic work! I'm glad I'm not the only one hooked on PTI stuff! Sx

  4. Such a pretty card, great take from the inspiration picture!!

  5. Beautiful stamping - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup again this week!

  6. Beautiful medallions, Sandie. Love how you've stamped them slightly off the page. (Can't take my eyes off those medallions!)

  7. The medallions are beautiful! Pretty card!
