Yes, another post, ok?!

Yep. I've gotta post just one more time today--this one's for One Layer Wednesday. The challenge is to use at least three stamps on a one layer card. Well, okay then! I used six--and it was a lot easier than I thought it'd be!

Here's my card~

Details~



I've seen lots of cards with strips of stamping, and I've always been afraid to try it. WHY?! I LOVE it--that's what I've done with this card.

I started by dry embossing four lines across my card. Then I masked most of the card and then stamped my images. I took the masking off, added a sentiment, and voila! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

I will definitely be making more like this in the near future--fabulous for mailing! Can't wait to see what everyone else has created! Happy one layer stamping! :)

Oh this is so pretty I will need to try this technique, going to be rummaging in my stamps anyway so will keep some suitable flowers to have a go to hand.

Mynette, this card is FAB.
I love the colour combo you've used, and the embossed lines are inspired.
