One Layer Cards!

PWC158 HolidayPolly wm

Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge over on the Paper Pretties Blog. This week the challenge is One Layer Cards.

Those who know me know that one layer cards scare me!!!!!! I love seeing other people make them just not me! So it is even funnier that I have made not one but two cards for this challenge.

When I first started getting ready to do this challenge I was going to do the snowflake card, but I had such trouble getting the snowflake embossing folder to work properly (it embossed the first few snowflakes crisply and then the rest were a little blurry) so I gave up on that and used an embossing folder that worked ….. which was the one in the card above which I used with Paper Pretties Holiday Polly.

Not one to let an embossing folder beat me, I discovered that the  snowflake folder is a little out of alignment, so I carefully aligned it onto my paper taping it so it couldn’t move and viola … embossed snowflakes I was happy with. This time round I used Paper Pretties Snowflakes stamp set.

And the extra bonus is I have two Christmas cards to add to my collection for this year yahhhh!
