Simple Summer=One Layer Card

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!

Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL386 Stencil Art; CL148 Happiness Messages)
Ink: VersaMark; American Crafts Zing embossing powder (white)
Tools: EK Success Corner Rounder; Fiskars stamp press
