Less is More ... Recipe Challenge

 Good Morning!  It's my birthday today and it is a Less is More tradition that if the birthday of a member of the design team falls on a new challenge day the challenge is to CASe (Copy and Share Everything) one of their designs!  So this challenge is for you to CASe my design.

This is the card for you to CASe:

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers before water colouring using distress inks.  I then chopped the image up into tiles before adhering them to the card base with foam tape to add interest and dimension.  I finished the card by adding a simple clean sentiment.

I hope you will find the time to join in with the challenge.  I cannot wait to see your take on my card - what inspires you is just going to be very interesting.

Less is More ... Theme Challenge

Good Morning!! New month and time for a new challenge at Less is More this time we have a Recipe for you - Christmas in July.  Every year I plan to start creating my Christmas cards early to get ahead of the time and every year I fail - at least this challenge has encouraged me to make a start.  How about you? Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?  If not, why not use this challenge to kickstart your creating.

I have a couple of simple designs to share:

A simple card created with a gelli print for the die cut tree and leaf dies to create a simple tree.  A few very thin strips of black card to anchor the tree to the base plus a final simple sentiment.  The hardest part was lining up the black strips!

My second card is also quite simple:

For this one I stamped and heat embossed the image before water colouring with distress inks. I added the stamped panel to the card base with some foam tape to add a little dimension and added interest.

Check out the blog for more inspiring cards from the Design Team. I look forward to seeing your cards.

Stay Safe and Keep Crafting!
