Gem's Cottage Blog » Blog Archive » One Layer, Paper Pierced Card


I have to admit that before posting this card I made for The Paper Players, I hesitated… a lot! The challenge calls for a one-layer, clean and simple card. For the first requirement – that the card be just one layer – I’ll put a check mark. I printed Tina Wenke’s beautiful tea party scene on GP card stock, then embossed (well, technically, it is debossed or pillow-embossed) it with Spellbinder’s Labels 13. Next, I paper-pierced a frame around the image… and this now brings me to the second requirement – that the card be clean and simple. Does this card look clean and simple? Ummm…I’m not that sure, and that’s when I hesitated posting it.

I delayed posting until I thought of what my husband would say. Knowing him, he’d probably remark (with a chuckle!), “Of course, it is a clean card – you wouldn’t make a dirty card now, would you? As for it being simple, well, the act of making holes on paper with a needle is so simple, even a child can do it!” So, I guess, based on that definition of being clean and simple, this card is clean and simple… and that’s why I’m posting it today, lol!

Note: Interested in the paper piercing that I did? Check out this post, which includes videos on how to get started with it!

Wow, this is just gorgeous! Love the embossing! You’ve managed to squeeze in a whole lot onto a CAS OLC. Thanks for playing with us this week at The Paper Players!
