After my very late entry yesterday into last week's Less is More sketch challenge I thought I'd surprise everyone by entering their new one on the very first day! This week the Less is More challenge is:
For our challenge this week, we have chosen to add another parameter to our colour challenge and that is that the submissions must be Christmas related cards.
The colour is
WHITE on WHITEWe would like to remind everyone that submissions must adhere to the Guidelines set out above and be evidently Clean and Simple!
It's also a new month which means a new sponsor and this month we are excited that Stephanie from Clearly Besotted is our sponsor. Clearly Besotted are Celebrating their first birthday this month too!
I knew immediately what I wanted to do for this theme and here it is..........
It's really difficult photographing a white on white card but hopefully you get the gist! I have used my Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia stamp set and white embossed it onto vellum (still out from yesterday......)and then die cut it using the Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur die which matches up perfectly with the Poinsettia stamp set as well - doesn't it make a pleasant change to have one die for two stamp sets? I attached a piece of white ribbon across a 6" square blank and then shaped the flowers and leaves with a bone folder before adding them to the card using Pinflair Glue gel. The sentiment, Wishing you a Magical Christmas, was also white embossed on vellum and is from my Woodware "Beary" Christmas set and I used my EK Success label punch and also cut a piece of white card to back it. Rather than trying to glue the vellum to the white card I thought I'd use brads but didn't have any white ones (who does?) so covered the tops in Versamark ink, then white e/p and heat embossed them. Finishing touch was adding some white Liquid Pearls.
Just wanted to wish Clearly Besotted's Stephanie and all her amazing DT girls a very, very Happy Birthday.
Thanks for dropping by. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
