This week’s blogger challenge is to create a one-layer card. I combined the challenge with today’s Clear and Simple Stamps release review featuring the shapes and labels sets in Collection 3. My card highlights one of CSS's hexagon-filled sets in a simple graphic design.
My one layer card is created on a white card base. I used a black marker and a ruler to mark off a rectangle at the center of the card, then masked the rectangle’s sides before stamping a hexagon pattern inside it with one of the single images from the Hexagons Plus stamp set. Now that I'm done, I think I'd have liked this better if I'd used a gray marker to better coordinate with my stamped images . . .
Once I’d finished with the open hexagons, I went back and filled in some of them with a slightly smaller solid hexagon in gray, teal, and yellow inks. The “just a note” sentiment from the All Occasions 2 set is stamped in the open space in the lower right corner of the card and accented with a single silver brad.
