RC one layer card 2

Neon…hmmm…what do you think?

Personally, I wasn’t sure about them until Imagine Crafts sent me the whole lot of them!  (Thank you, Imagine Crafts!)

I actually STILL wasn’t sure about them until I opened them and started using them.

WOW!  They are bright, but not quite as NEON as I thought they were going to be.  I mean, you really can go too far with neon.  C’mon…remember the 80’s?

Then, when I paired them with the Fresh & Fruity Stamp Set by Reverse Confetti to make an out-of-the-box card (not fruit at all!), well…that’s when I got hooked.

View the video to see how I lined up these shapes to make a fun One Layer Card.

Here is a peek at the card I did for StampNation this week.

The video tutorial (SN exclusive) shows you exactly how I made it along with my thought process and why I chose the different elements for this card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s One Layer Card, it was a whole lot of fun to make!

    Love the simplicity of this card Catherine. Great out of the box thinking. Those neons look fab together.
