Rose Simplicity

This is a card that I created for an organized swap at leadership. The challenge was to make a one-layer card. Yep, just one piece of card stock. The rules allowed one embellishment, but that was it! Although it sounds simple, the ideas that people came up with in the swap were amazing! Sometimes simple isn't bad. :-)

Anyway, here is my card using the set A Rose is a Rose. This is a two-step stamping set, so it is easy to create the "depth" of the leaves and roses. I used Riding Hood Red and Old Olive ink and stamped on Glossy White card stock. To add the ribbon, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes, pulled the Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon through, and then tied the knot.

Stamps: A Rose is a Rose
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive
Paper: Glossy White card stock
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Crop-A-Dile
