One Layer Valentine Card Challenge!

Happy Thursday!!!

I had planned to post my Valentines Day card yesterday, but after working a 12-hour shift at the hospital, I came home and pretty much crashed.  I'd found a blog challenge that I wanted to participate in, and wanted to share the card with you.  It is with The Paper Players -  Challenge #179 (check them out by clicking on their name above).

The requirements were to make a one layer Valentine card.  Embellishments had to be kept to a minimum - I hope I didn't go over - I find it is hard sometimes to limit the "stuff" on my cards.   I've never entered a challenge before, so linking back to the challenge and linking my card to that site is all new to me.  If I am able to figure this out - I will certainly enter more.

Sweet little Valentine card.

I do like the idea of a one layer card, when you want something simple and easy to make.  For this card, all I did was run a strip of Season of Style Designer Washi Tape (from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Occasions catty), across a folded piece of Whisper White card stock.  I scored the front of the card across the top and bottom (hard to see in the photo - sorry), stamped my sentiment, die cut a little heart, embossed it with an embossing folder, and put it on the front of the card.....voila!  Quick & easy peasy!!  If you have a ton of "Valentines," think how quickly you could whip these out.
