a one-layer card???!!!

Those who know me "in real life" or who've been reading a long time, know that I love using tons of layers and embellishments on my hand-stamped projects. I'm happiest when fussy-cutting stamped images and playing with ribbons. So today's card should come as quite a surprise to you!
Yes, you can make a card using only one layer of card stock!!! I'd heard the rumors, but I needed to find out for myself.  ;)  And I am in love with the finished card! 
My Simply Scored Scoring Tool was hard at work to make this card. Using a half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock (4-1/4" x 11"), I first scored a fold-line at 5-1/2". Then I scored three lines at 8-7/8", 9", and 9-1/8". The final three score lines are at 10", 10-1/8", and 10-1/4". 
I stamped my greeting (Greetings of the Season) in Soft Suede ink between the sets of scored lines. A Vintage Faceted Button holding a tiny Linen Thread bow is the perfect embellishment.
Oh my goodness, I wish you could see the shimmer on this card in real life! I spritzed the card front - a lot - with my shimmer mist (rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint in a spritz bottle). It is absolutely gorgeous!! 
For all you busy Moms out there... this just might be your Christmas card this year.  :}  You can finish one in seconds! 
Don't forget that today is the last day for the Online Extravaganza! There are so many good deals, including MDS2+ for half off... that's $39.98plus tax for over $500 worth of digital content. Oh, and be sure to check out the super bargains for today only!  Have fun shopping  :}
