The latest challenge at Less is More, was to make a Christmas card with a bird.
I’m not 100% sure if the look of my card qualifies as “less”, but the work on it definitely does. A piece of designer paper, a Christmas sticker and a piece of ribbon – voilà!
Dang! I made a card for a challenge in the Less is More blog earlier this week. Didn’t get to take a pic of it until today though. I thought today was the last day to participate, but obviously the challenge is now closed. Oh well, I don’t know if my card really was a “less is more” card anyway.
However, the challenge was to use only one word as sentiment on the card front. I wrote Kram, which is the Swedish word for Hug, with Thickers Tiara letters. Background paper is a piece from DCWV The Street Lace stack. Then a black ribbon, and using the Fiskars Sunburts border punch on the black cardstock and – voilà!
I’ve made quite a few cards the last couple of days. Suddenly my mind was all blank, my ideas were poof gone! And I wanted to participate in a few more challenges… So I decided to simply let the papers do the talking. I’ve used a paper from Reprint om both cards. Besides the card bases and the designer paper – a star on one card and a cord on the other card. That’s it. Nothing else. Boring? Maybe. 😉 They do look a bit better IRL though, colors turned out very weird in the photos.
The first card is for Less is More week 33 – “Anything CAS goes”. Btw Julkram means “Christmas hugs”.
The second card is for CAS-ual Fridays CFC20 – Mini cards. My card is slightly smaller than 4″x4″.
Yay, I made TWO cards tonight after work. 😀
Second is a card made for Less is More, where challenge #31 is to make a card with something that has a metallic finish. I went ALL metallic, with golden cardstock, golden selfadhesive swirly ribbon and the sentiment embossed in gold.
My first participation in any of Less is More‘s challenges, and the theme of the week is to make a card with fruits or in fruity colors. I realized I don’t have ANY fruit stamps or embellishments. I did remember I saw a strawberry postcard the other day when I organized some of my crafting space. So, I used a piece of that postcard for my card. 😀
The rubber stamp is from Skapa Hobby (designed by me), and in English it means “Have a nice summer”. I know the summer is almost over, but I thought it suited the strawberries… I added small rhinestones to the little flower on the stamp image.
