Leaf Burst Stenciled Birthday – PP645

It’s been a while since I played in a few of my favorite challenges.  Today, I’m playing along with the Paper Players challenge which is always fun and challenging. Here’s the challenge board…

One layer cards are definitely something I don’t usually make and find kind of difficult which is probably why you don’t see many coming from me.  But here we go….

Stenciled One Layer Birthday Card - Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

I started off with Shimmery White card stock as the card base.  I used the Leaf Burst stencil from Altenew and Pawsitively Saturated inks from Simon Says Stamps: Limelicious, Ocean and Amethyst.   The sentiment is from The Greetery: All Kinds of Happy and is stamped in Versa Fine Clair Nocturne.  The envelope is also stenciled to coordinate with the card.  The Shimmery card stock gives the card some subtle sparkle.  But I was so tempted to add some sequins but really wanted to be true to the challenge.

Now that I saw how quickly this card came together, I’m going to try more one layer cards.  It’s all about trying new things and growing creatively.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Take care,
