A quick note because someone asked: the set I used for the bookmarks is Papertrey Ink's All Booked Up.
This week's OLW Challenge is to get inspired by last Sunday's post of Sunday Sweets on the Cake Wrecks blog. For those who've never visited Cake Wrecks, it's a blog of professionally made cake disasters...except on Sundays, when they show photos of gorgeously designed cakes. Last Sunday Sweets, titled Classic Beauties, struck me as a perfect OLW challenge.
The real challenge here is to keep to one layer. White or clear embossing on colored cardstock, pressure embossing, and using punched borders as masks to ink one layer are just three ways to get the look of some of these cakes without adding layers. Surely you can think of others!
I made two cards using two different cakes as inspiration. The first, which is 3" x 5.5", has white embossing of First Fruits, a set by Papertrey Ink, on SU's Marina Mist paper.
The second card uses PTI's Spring Moss cardstock and Friends 'til the End stamp set. The turquoise ink is VersaMagic. I colored the center of the flower with a white gel pen and embossed the first part of the sentiment in white.
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.
2. Make a one-layer card inspired by a cake from the Classic Beauties post on Cake Wrecks. Keep embellishments to a minimum and do not add layers!
3. Upload your card somewhere online and link to it using the OLW29 InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.
4. The most important rule of all: HAVE FUN!
