Less is More


I was going to load this earlier but I've just tidy my room after completing 19 Christmas cards they were what I call Clean and Simple and what I also call conveyor belt crafting which I hate.
So back to my Less is More card, the challenge calls for Silver and yes that is Silver embossing but my camera is giving it a yellow tinge.
I cut a square template with a nestability to place over my white card so I could stamp and distress it, inside the square and then stamped the large tree to one side after the template was removed using a stamp a jig.
I was pleased how it turned out then I've seen some of the marvellous silver cards that are being loaded on the challenge so back to the drawing board.

  43. I've always loved stamps of trees. In your piece is a beautiful winter so as to be regretted that the depths of winter a little more time. Card is beautifully composed. I envy you such a sense of color and atmosphere. Regards
    Sorry for the bad translation, but I'm using google translator, which is not always perfect (but often very funny)

  51. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

  52. I found your card on Pinterest, I have just bought the same stamp set and love to see what other crafters are creating with it, I really love your creation, it seems kinda peacefull which is lovely for Christmas. can I ask what ink you used for the background trees, it looks navy blue? but then your bigger tree looks a lovely gold! you sound like me...too self critical! whatever I make theres always someones card I like better than mine, yours really IS lovely xx
