Less is more week 54 - OLC


The second week of the month means OLC (one layer card) for the challenge over at Less is more and in addition to this Chrissie and Mandi would like to see stripes on our cards.

I've been meaning to have a go at this technique for ages so I'm grateful to the ladies for setting this one and making me actually get on and do it.  

Another thing this week - no square card, but I thought this one would look better as a DL and now it's finished I think I'm right.  

Firstly I used the computer to do the sentiment - MTF Cupcake and Tunga are the fonts I used.

Next I put four lines of double sided tape across the card and one at a time I added glitter.  Really simple but I think quite effective.  I think I might do this again.

Have a good evening and thanks for dropping by.

I do this very often Sue, lovely isn't it
The jury is out on whether this is still one layer?
Superb card nevertheless

All that sparkle is just perfect on a congrats card!
For what it's worth I think glue tape doesn't count as a extra layer ;0)
