The theme for this week's One Layer Wednesday at Styles Ink was inspired by Jennifer's recent trip to Pennsylvania Dutch country. We are challenged to make a one-layer card inspired by Pennsylvania Dutch Hex signs. It was fun to read about hex signs and the special meanings of the symbols used.
I didn't think I would be able to do this one, but I started poking through my stamps and pulling out all the little pieces that I thought might work. It was fun to play with the stamps, putting them together in different ways trying to find a design that worked.
I have to say that the hard part for me was stamping the design on the finished card. It took five tries to get everything lined up, and it's still not quite right, but I had to call it good and take my bleary eyes to bed!
This morning I decided one of the rejects wasn't terrible if you didn't look too closely, so I cut it out and matted it on red cardstock. It's not one-layer, but at least I saved a piece of paper from the recycle and got more than one card for my efforts!
