OLS29- Details

We hope you enjoyed making some Christmas cards in July with the One Layer Simplicity team. It was great to see your one layer entries and get some inspiration for more creating.

We loved seeing the variety of themes and styles and have chosen a few details that really stood out.

Remember to add our blog badge for those of you whose cards have been featured here.

Thanks for joining in; we hope to see you again next month.

Kylie created an eye-catching tree on her card with bold gold circles.

KT chose a simple turquoise and white colour scheme which really pops on kraft.

Some clever masking and planning by MacMable resulted in this amazing one layer card.

OLS29 Christmas in July

Hi everyone, it's Heather here, inviting you to participate in the July One Layer Simplicity Challenge. I have decided to get started on some Christmas cards and thought I would challenge all of you to join me. I realise some of you are way ahead of me but maybe you would like to take the challenge to make a few of your Christmas cards one layer.

If you participate in a different celebration towards the end of the year you are welcome to post your cards here this month; just make sure they are one layer!

OLS29 Rules:

1.  A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half.  No other layers of
     paper allowed. 
2.  Make a one layer Christmas card and keep embellishments to a minimum.  
3.  Post your card somewhere on the internet and link to it using the Inlinkz button below.
     If you link to your blog, please be sure to link to your OLS29 post and not to your blog's main page.
     That way, we will be sure to see your beautiful creation!
4.  The deadline is midnight EST on July 24th.
5.   The most important rule of all:  HAVE FUN!
