Less Is More


I mentioned I a person of habit in my WOYWW yesterday which is proved once again by my posting my Less is More post. Must try and change it up now and again.
Anyway the challenge this week at Less is More is for a sketch, now the top card isn't the first one I made but is my favourite.
I 've used the Holly and Mistletoe stamp from Penny Black twice, I really just wanted the bit at the bottom of the stamp. The 25 is in fact a Woodware stamp and stamped on spotting paper and cut out.


This was my first card but the top one pipped the post for a favourite. I've used the Simon Says Stamps star die and again used the stamp for the 25.

Both are terrific and inspirational. You have given me lots of food for thought here! I must say, however the the top one is my fav of the 2 but by a margin only! Lovely! xx

Daria said...

They are both wonderful Christmas cards! My favorite one is the Holly & Mistletoe one simply because I like the contrast of the greens with the red and white of the rest of the card. Thank you for sharing.
