How to Create a One-Layer Panel Card with the Brayer

Gosh, how do you like the title to this tutorial?  Coming up with an appropriate eye-catching title is hard to do each week, and this week was the toughest.  If you look at my card and the title, you will notice how I compacted it all in the title.  My card is one layer, has the look of 9 panels, and it’s all done with the brayer.  So there you have it.  Enjoy!

Brayer your ink onto glossy cardstock.  In my photo I am using Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea.  In my first photo, my other cards use Kaleidacolor Berry Blaze.

With a stamp placement product, center your main image on your cardstock.

Next, place your images along the side of your main image.

You will see that I stamped on additional images so I have a pattern that goes from top to bottom.  Place a sticky note  across the main image area.  You want to add post-it notes to create segments to your card.  Your placement is dependent on the images you choose.

Encase the corner images by using sticky notes.  With a tiny sponge, sponge coordinating colour around the top and side of your card.  You will also do the same along the top of your card (work is underneath the post-it note).  Finish by stamping an image in the open area at the center of the top and bottom.

Wasn’t that fun?
