A Quick Less is More Card…

….as I’m supposed to be looking at houses on the internet with hubby, which is actually quite exciting. I’m looking forward to getting back into a house of our own, especially as we are getting used to the area now.

I’ve made three cards for this weeks challenge but only this one is completely finished hopefully I get some time to post the others later when my little one is in bed. This is actually the second card I made and is the result of me chopping the end off the first one, the offcut looked small and sweet so I made this.


This is one of my all time favourite stamps, the detail on it is gorgeous and it stamps beautifully. I’ve lightly dragged the colour from the image with a water brush to give it some subtle colour. The sentiment is stamped with the same ink and embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. I rounded the corner on the right of the card and then the left hand side looked a little plain so I added a very fine ribbon (sssh don’t tell anyone but it’s the ribbon I cut from the inside of a new top…you can get some fab little pieces of ribbon doing that!) and a few clear gems.

I would also like to add this card to OLW, this week the theme is something that says peace, and to me the colour blue is very tranquil and peaceful.

Thanks for stopping by.
