One Layer Birthday

For OLW8, the challenge was to mask a background. I have never played along with them before, I have never masked a background, and I have never made a one layer card!! I knew this was going to be a challenge.

I'm pretty happy with the result. I masked the bird image, then inked it in silver, and added some black floral stamping. After stamping the sentiment, I was wishing that I could add a ribbon, but if I did, it wouldn't be one layer anymore, would it? I cheated by drawing the ribbon on with a marker.


  1. Fabulous one layer card! The shape of mask, the placement, colors, fake ribbon...I love all the details on this card.

  2. Fab card! It's perfect! Love the fake ribbon.


  3. Terrific card, so simple, but stunning. Esp like the drawn on "ribbon"! Must remember that.....

  4. Gorgeous card for this challenge.

  5. WOW! What a beautiful card! No one would know it was a first effort if you had told, LOL! And you can add a ribbon if necessary for your design. One-layer cards are just one layer of cardstock. You can add other things if absolutely necessary for your design. But I love your hand-drawn bow!

  6. This is a simply amazing one layer card!
