I was inspired to create a one layer card for the simple summer challenge on the Hero Arts blog. Since I had several thank you cards to make, I knew this was a good idea for mass production. I pulled out a really old v vintage stamp set that I bought at Scrapper's Playground many years ago. The sentiment came from another oldie but goody Hero Arts set. Add to that some kraft cardstock, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder and, well, it doesn't get much simpler than that. Here's my card:
The stamped image at the top of the card is actually made from just two stamps. To make it easier to mass produce, I positioned them on my Fiskars stamp press. I added the sentiment separately. This card would definitely qualify for a 10-minute dash!

Some 25 years ago, my husband gave me the most beautiful gift -- his last name. Many people often comment on how nice my name is and point out that my last name means "eternal." When I started making cards I began using a play on words for my signature and instead of signing "eternally yours" on the back, I used "Eterno-ly yours." That became my creative signature and there was no second guessing what I would name this blog!
