More One Layer

Time for me to show you some more inspiration for the current Butterfly Challenge.
#31 Spin The  Butterfly Wheel with O for One Layer Card. 

 First Card.
Using: One layer card/Oval/Only one xtra embellishment/Old Gold/Olive/Orchid/Butterflies.
I used a sheet of blank white cardstock to make a base card. I then die cut  an oval shape using a scalloped oval stitched die from The Works which I placed in the centre of the card front to create a mask. Using Distress Oxide in 'Peeled Paint' I inked around the mask and covered the entire front of the card.  When I removed the mask I had a nice blank oval. I had bought some mini wooden floral stamps 'Nature '(set of 15) at the Weekend by Paper Poetry and used two of the leaf sprays to ink round the outside edge of the centre piece.  The gold roses were stamped using my Heyda Peg stamps  called 'Roses and Leaves'. The butterflies stamped all over the Olive green are another Heyda Peg stamp called 'Butterflies'. At first glance I must admit, because of the angle I have stamped them that they look a bit like distorted oak leaves!! My 1 embellishment is the Orchid felt butterfly die cut using 'Cascadia' butterfly trio by Memorybox.  The sentiment is another new purchase from Woodware 'Deco Sayings'. I used my trusty pink Big shot for all the die cutting. 

Entering the card above into the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania # Thankyou / Thanks.
Lets Craft and Create  #153 Anything goes +optional Thankyou. 
Country View Challenges # Hand stamped. 
Creative Fingers #174 Anything goes.
Brown Sugar #295 Anything goes.

Second Card. 
Using: One layer card/Oval/Only one xtra embellishment/Old Gold/Orchid/Butterflies.
For this card I used the piece of card I had die cut the oval from to make a mask on the front of the card.Then completely coloured the oval shape in using Distress Oxide in Spiced Marmalade.  When I removed the mask I went round the edge of the scallop with an Old Gold gel pen and then added the dots for good measure. I found the woolly fringing in the same box I was looking in for the felt I used in the card above and thought Why Not? So I did.  The butterfly stamp is Stamplorations 'Trendy Butterflies' and the sentiment is another one from Woodware from my stash. 

Entering the card above into the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts #322 Clean and simple.
Scrapping 4 Fun #152 Anything goes.
2 Crafty Critter Crazies # Anything goes with th critter.
Craft Stamper # Anything goes.
Love To Craft #40 Anything goes.

It seemed a pity not to use the already die cut and partly coloured oval that I had used to mask the first card with so I came up with the Third Card.
Using: One layer card/Oval/Only one xtra embellishment/Old Gold/Olive /Butterflies.
You don't have to use blank card. Here I have used a one sided sheet of  glitter design card from The Works. Cut to required size and folded in half to make the card base. Then I simply coloured the oval with some more Distress Oxide to cover and stamped the sentiment (again from Woodware) and the Heyda Butterfly once it was dry. Used my Old Gold gel pen to go over the sentiment and the butterfly and added the dots around the edge to decorate. Adhered this to the front of the card as my I extra embellishment. Job Done!!

 Taken at an angle below to show it is indeed just a piece of patterned card stock folded in half.
Entering the card above into the following challenges:
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #117 Anything goes.
Crafter's Castle # Anything goes.
Crafts Galore #69 Anything goes.

Hope I have given you some inspiration. One layer cards really aren't  intimidating at all. 4 people have already submitted a one layer card. The challenge runs for another week and closes Tue 12th.

Greetings, ValeryAnne! Three gorgeous butterfly creations and each one so unique. I especially like the flutterbies in the background of your first masterpiece. I noticed them right away and thought, "why don't I do things like that?" I simply forget.
