DRS Designs No Layer Challenge

This week the challenge on the DRS Designs Blog is to make a no layer card! It's time to get back to basics!!! Sometimes you need a quick but not overly done card and with this challenge we hope to inspire you with ideas on how to make your own quick, no layer cards. We would love for you to participate because sharing is the best source of inspiration right? If you do participate, please post a direct link to your creation in the comment section of the challenge (#17) post on the DRS Designs Blog and if you upload it to a public gallery, please use the keyword DRSC17.

To sweeten the deal, we're offering a set of note cards and an unmounted image to a random participant. Be sure to link your creation by 8pm on Sunday, April 5 to be included in the drawing.
Here's my No Layer Challenge Card:

To create this card I used smooth white cardstock to form my card base. I stamped the Large Beer Mug image in the center of the card front and colored it with markers. Then, I stamped the sentiment on top of the image using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for assistance. I used my Score-Pal to create the scored lines on either side of the image and applied Stickles to the beer "foam."

Stamps: DRS Designs- Large Beer Mug, Beer is the Answer Sentiment
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black

Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot
Accessories: Bic Markers, Score-Pal, Stickles, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Finished Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

I have to admit, I really like the simplicity and quickness of these types of cards. I bet you'll be seeing more no layer cards from me soon!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!

Great card! The image really pops against the white background; perfect coloring on the beer and the stickles add a fun touch of sparkle. Love those Scor-pal lines; I used them on my card, too!
