Lawnscaping Challenge #63: One Layer

Happy Monday! 

It's the start of a new week, which means it's time for another challenge at the Lawnscaping blog!  This week's challenge is a hard one-- create a one-layer card.  



I think it's nearly impossible for me not to create a card without  dimensional adhesive, so I felt especially stumped about this one.  ...And to exclude embellishments like twine, washi tape, buttons, etc... what's left to go on the card..??  Lol!  But I guess that's what challenges are all about!  Here's the card I created: 


I started by using the Lawn Cuts hearts to make a stamping template for my card.  I then used a variety of Lawn Fawn sets to stamp various patterns in the hearts.  I was inspired to try this die cut masking technique that Jennifer McGuire shared the other day.  After the die cut hearts were stamped, I added the sentiment (Making Frosty Friends) and added a few extra hearts (Bee Mine, Critters Ever After) and dots (Let It Snow) to fill in the space. 


I hope you'll play along with us this week!  Our sponsor is the very awesome Simon Says Stamp, who is giving away a $25 gift card to the lucky winner!
