One layer butterfly z cards

This last week my wonderful crafting friend Pam bought me the ALLOW YOURSELF Unity Stamp set.

  Allow Yourself

I wanted to play with it right away, but I didn't I used it as incentive to clean up my craftroom. It really needed a spring cleaning. So today I had a couple of minutes to craft. Unity had a mini challenge to make a 1 layer card. I wondered if I could make a mixed media card with just one layer.
I did some masking and faux layering with makers and a ruler. I made 2 "Z"fold cards. I also used my gel plate to make the background.

This next photo shows how the z fold looks. I have a scripture stamped on the inside. 

as a disclosure... I did add to my one layer card. I didn't cut the antenna out. I am not that good. I cute a slightly wider than a hair piece of black cardstock to make the antenna. To me it still is a one layer card. I just added back a layer that I cut off. Leave a comment and tell me w hat you think. Does it still count as one layer?


  1. This is so beautiful I love it. I would say it counts as one layer, just looks like more
