Seize the Birthday Challenge

The option for this challenge for the next 2 weeks is One Layer.

I love making 1 layer cards, the best part, they mail perfectly! ;)

I used a retired set from Inspired By Stamping; Paris.  It was always one of my favorite sets.  I know just the person who will receive this card too! :)

A hint for making the perfect one layer card is the Rule of Thirds.  
 I made this vellum template to lay on the top of my card to help with the stamp placement.  By using any parts of this template, your card will be balanced.  Upper left or right intersection - lower left or right intersection -  center square -- you get the idea.  This free tool [make one for yourself] is amazing, and has saved my card bases by having correct placement, rather then trying to eye it.
Your turn.  Make that 1 layer card, and upload it over at the Seize the Birthday blog.  



Thanks for stopping by~

Great card, Vicki! I love how you managed to layer the images up, all on one layer! Yes, the rule of thirds rules, too!

Vicki, thanks for the placement 1/3 rule. I know and use it, but your grid idea makes this so much easier!

You have worked the rule of thirds to perfection, Vicki. This is a lovely CAS design.

This is one layer CAS perfection! And thank you for sharing your secret... I just guesstimate it, which may say something about my less-successful cards. ;)
