Default Dog Days Of Summer Master Challenge Thread

Title: Strip Down Your Card
Hostess: Greywolf (Val)
Keyword: JUN13VSNG
Day/Date: Saturday, June 8
Time: 1:00 PM EST


When it is really, really hot, like in the Dog Days of Summer in Texas, most of us tend to wear lightweight or less clothing, shorts: a swimsuit, bikini, thong (!) or if you have a private beach, maybe NOTHING! EEK!

The challenge is: Let's strip down our cards for the Dog Days of Summer and make a naked ... I mean a one-layer card . Bonus points if you make it with a summer (sun, beach, hot, picnic, etc.) theme.

I define a one-layer card as one piece of cs, just the card base with no attachments. However, if you would rather make your design on a separate panel and attach that "one" piece to your card base, that is acceptable for this challenge. Also, if you feel you have to, I won't deduct points if you add stickers, rhinestones or ribbon.

I know that one-layer and CAS cards are difficult for some people, so I'm including several samples.

Attached thumbnails show a very basic one-layer card, a slightly stepped up one-layer with heat embossing on patterned cs, and a one-layer simple scene on a separate panel which was attached to the card base. One-layer cards don't have to be "plain." You can also include things like paper piercing or glitter or Stickles.
