Afternoon folks, hope you're keeping well.
The afternoon's are getting shorter as the year moves towards Christmas. I needed the lights on in my craftroom before 3pm, but it is a bit misty out there today.
As regular followers may know, I love to take part in a couple of challenges on a regular basis, namely MUSE and Less is More.
This week Less is More want more than one tree on your project and and at MUSE the designer is Marion. So without further ado here is my card.
and here is Marion's card.
I love this built up technique and I've tried it once before but I wanted to have another go.
However a couple of problems-
1. I don't have many large script dies, well one actually and it wasn't appropriate!
2. I don't have a balloon stamp or die
So what to do? I had a bit of a think and decided to go with a Christmas theme and link to the Less is More challenge, hence the trees and use my 'Happy Christmas' die. This posed a further headache as it is an old one that cuts out a sentiment but you can't separate the two words as they are a solid plate die and leaves an imprint of the edge of the die if you are not very careful! Go with the full phrase was the decision. Anyway you can see the result. I used more or less the same colours as Marion and moved the focus to the bottom of the card as befits a tree!
Here is a close up of the raised sentiment.
I also made one with a smaller tree but left the white embossed 'to you' off and mounted it on a black base card.
If you look carefully you may see a line where the die plate was!
OK, that's about it. Thanks for calling around.
I shall enter the following challenges:-
Less is More - More than one tree
MUSE - #94
STAMPlorations - Stamps and lots of layers ( there are 4 Happy Christmas layers)
