This week we had to create a one layer card with a border stamp. I decided to use a rollagraph wheel that I have had for some time and have not really used much at all. I saw it demonstrated at a craft fair and, as usual, the demonstrator made it look very easy. However, I still need a lot of practice to get the pressure even. It is particularly difficult when applied to a one layer card as I find that it is almost impossible to get the design symetrical. You can imagine what this pile of spoilt cards looks like, I'm sure! I did trim a little strip from this card to make it look OK.
As a Scot, I am understandably attracted to Celtic designs. Much of the Celtic Art that we see nowadays is inspired by the Book of Kells which I would love to see in real life. Youtube will have to suffice in the meantime!
I have decided to attach a ribbon to this card although it is not now a one layer card without embellishment. I have spent today with a desire to add another element so I gave in. I am still happy with the original card but again I am surprised at the difference in the two cards. That's why I craft!!!.

To reply to questions about my method of using the Rollagraph system, I have added a post with information here.
