Challenge #484 - One Layer

Hey LIMettes!

We're back and can't wait start our new challenge -

To create a one layer card, you may only use the CARD BASE to stamp on and no other layers. Die cuts, embellishments, etc are not allowed.

Less is More is a Clean and Simple challenge, but what does clean and simple (CAS) mean and what are we looking for in your cards?
One main focal point
Lots of clean / open / non-patterned / non-textured space (often called 'white space' although not necessarily white) Space with NO PATTERN and NO TEXTURE on it
Minimal or NO layers
Minimal embellishments
Quick and easy to recreate
Cards that comply with our Glossary of Terms

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!


To be eligible for showCASe choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages.

Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.
New work only please.


  1. nice!. love one layer cards. will get cracking, but may I suggest LIM starts to make their badges square so we can share it on IG and FB without headaches, that always let's me drop it :-(

  2. I can't find the Linky Tool - the message says the Linky Tools Subscription has expired. Help! Vicky x

  3. sorry, I realize my card #20 doesn't qualify as there is no white space. (was thinking one layer).....
