Less is More #311 one layer week

It's time for One Layer week at Less is More challenge and the theme is "drinks". I thought a die I got at Christmas which cuts out on the edge of the fold would be perfect, as it certainly keeps it one layer! I used the spectrum noir glitter pens to add some colour. Only thing then is there is an awful lot of white space to fill. I decided to go to my fav SU sentiment set and emboss in silver powder. Finally I used one of the dies- a little umbrella- that comes with the set in the bottom corner, cutting through the base card, so still one layer.

I'm also entering this card into Darnell's latest NBUS challenge.

This is a fab idea! Such an original and creative approach to one layer cards, and it looks great! The sentiment is so elegant with those swooshes. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

What a super card. I've not seen a die that works like that before, it's perfect for one layer card, and I think you could probably create some amazing stepper cards with a similar technique. Lovely!

Simply CAS brilliance on a one layer card Linby although I'm not implying your die-cut top was simple in any way. Love the crisp simple beauty of your card and a perfect take on the challenge. thanks for playing along with us at Less is More this week. Sarah x

Hi Linby! I don't see any mention of NBUS in your post, but I see your card in my gallery, so thank you for joining! I have never seen any die like your NBUS drinks die - which is SO festive!! - that cuts on the card edge! It's remarkable and I love how you filled all that white space with your silver sediment and punctuated it with that teeny sweet umbrella! It's good to see you!! Hugs, Darnell
