Cardmaking

One layer card

Happy Thursday crafty people!  I hope you are having a great week.  It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in Scotland and we have a four day weekend to look forward to, what more could we ask for?

Today I’m sharing a one layer card, which is not something I do very often…. like almost never!  I used a record stamp from an old magazine freebie set and I used memento black ink with clear embossing powder to give it a glossy look like a record.  Then I used some washi tape to create a wide stripe.  I had to make my masking wider using two lengths of tape as my first attempt I went over the edge and made a mess!

Then I used my lovely new make up brushes to blend some distress oxide inks over this panel (from the bottom I used blueprint sketch, salty ocean, cracked pistachio and twisted citron).  I added a few splashes of water to lift the colour and then removed the tape.  I finished off by colouring the centres of the records with the matching colours before stamping “Happy birthday”.

I hope that you like my simple one layer card.  I think I don’t tend to make these as I’m quite messy and I end up wasting card blanks (as I did in this case!) but maybe I should work on being a little more precise and try out a few more one layer designs.

Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope you will say hi in the comments.  Have a fab evening whatever you are up to.

  1. I’m loving that little record stamp! We found a bunch of old 45 records at my mother-in-law’s house a few months ago and it was so neat looking through them. Some Elvis, too!!

  3. Your card is amazing! I love the colors and how the records are “escaping” the colored strip. So cool and unique. Thank you so much for joining us at The Male Room Challenge.
