Some Folksy Patriotic Cards

The Squigglefly challenge this week is One Layered Cards. I have three types of cards that trip me up: One Layered Cards, No line coloring, and anything requiring measurements like step cards and the like. But I bit the bullet and used the fun Old Maid Americana image by Sandra Caldwell. Sandra is a new artist at Squigglefly and her fun patriotic and folksy images are wonderful.


I also took the same image and cropped it down to just the magic star wand and framed it up using a circle frame in Microsoft Word.


Fun stuff - hope you can find some time this week and join in the challenge.

Hugz!

  7. These are both really neat one layer cards! I just can't seem to do one layer card. Love the antiqued coloring you gave them, especially love the sentiment on the side and the magic dust sprinkles on your second card.

  12. Nancy, this is just fabulous! I absolutely adore the sentiment on the inside with the cropped part of the image - brilliant idea! I love your coloring on this as well, and great way you did the sentiment sideways! You knocked this out of the park friend!
