Less is More


When I saw the sketch on Less is More and I knew I had a few stamps that was made for it but they're actually in a box of Christmas stamps that has been put away and I had planned to get Hubby to get them when it was October which will be tomorrow a bit late for the challenge
But some stamps are in boxes by who makes them and that includes High Hopes and I thought this Snowman could be the answer. Of course there was no way he was going to be flat and I used stitched diamond embossing folder which you can match together to emboss a square ( I really wanted to used the candy cane stripes but obviously in safe place)
I stamped the stampin up sentiment before I embossed the card. Overall I please how this card turned out, now I just need to be able to photo it nicely.

  3. Forgot to say how do you match the folder as I tried to work it out before. I'm thinking do you overlap the emboss folder to fit the machine.
