Less is More - Week 69 - Recipe
Hello everyone - hope you're all enjoying this fantastic weather we're having at the moment. As I've got a busy week ahead I thought I'd get my card for the Less is More challenge done and dusted and this is what they want:
We have a very simple recipe this week and that is simply to make a card which is
NOT A SQUARE
nor a rectangle for that matter.
What we're really trying to say is that we want a shaped card.
Didn't have long to think about this before I decided to use my Spellbinders flowerpot dies. I die cut the actual card base with the largest die and then cut one medium and two small flowerpots. Whilst they were still in the die I inked them with Distress Inks making sure to shade more down one side to make them dimensional. I then used my scoreboard to put lines on the pots to define the top of the pot. The base card was looking a little plain so put it through my Joy with an embossing folder just on the top part. I then used Pinflair glue gel to attach them to the main card and then added flowers (from stash) and leaves punched out of left over cardstock. A piece of rickrack ribbon and a tag (punched) finished the card. Sentiment is from Stampin Up Silhouette Sentiments.
