September Card Kit: One Layer Card

Hi Everyone!

Lots of behind the scenes work going on at the blog today! As you can see at the bottom of the post, I've added the links and descriptions for the products I used in today's card. Click on the icons and they will take to where you may purchase the items if you'd like.
Let me make a disclaimer: I am not involved in any affiliate programs with any companies. I make no money from anything you click on. I just wanted to provide an easy way for you to do a little shopping if you so desire!
As with many things on the blog lately, this is a work in process and I'm still trying to figure out how to change appearances, font styles etc.

Ok, so for today's card. I wanted to create a very simple one layer card using the stamps from the September Card Kit. (Yes...I'm still
using it!) I started out stamping a rough layout of the way I thought I  might use the stamps. Then I pulled out my distress ink swatches and put some colors together that I liked. I made notes on the layout of what colors I wanted to use and where. Once I started the card, I realized, I made the "desk" at the bottom a little taller than I had originally planned, so I had to make a few adjustments. When I finished all the stamping, I realized that I also stamped the sentiment a little lower that I should have, so I had a whole lot more white space than I wanted. So, I scattered some sequins to fill it all in a bit. I rounded the corners and ran my Tumbled Glass distress pad along the edges and finished the card!
