Neat and Tangled: One-Layer Card Ideas

by May Park-

Happy Friday! I am popping in today to share a couple of one layer cards that I shared on the Neat and Tangled blog yesterday.


I wanted to create a 3D effect inspired by the image I found here. So I stamped my light bulb and sentiment twice with a slight twist using neon inks: blue and pink. It’s definitely CAS and super easy to reproduce. FYI, I used the light bulb from Sparkle and Shine, the string from Just for You, and the sentiment from Out of the Box.


For my next card, I went to sort of messy using blending/masking technique. I stamped light bulbs in different positions and inked the colors with several kinds of Distress Inks. I finished it off with the sentiment from Origami Map. It’s hard to see from the photo above, but I added some shimmer over the light bulbs using clear Wink of Stella. These are the stamps sets that I used to create my two cards:
