For the colours this week at "Less is More", we have chosen something really seasonal, namely Red & Green.
In fact the card which I posted yesterday, which was my final contribution as Guest Designer for Lili of the Valley would fit into this category too, scroll down if you'd like to take a peek at that one, I kinda liked the way it turned out!
But onto my samples for this week!
I couldn't decide which I preferred of these two incarnations. It's a bit like 'Spot the difference' isn;t it!
This one was inspired by a LIM submission by Jenny last week, she added 'all the way', but I simply used the bells to complete the phrase!
This uses a free border embossing folder from a magazine and some Sizzix die cut letters. The holly leaves are from an X Cut punch.
Thanks for the inspiration Jenny!
I love this little Tim Holtz stamp. I coloured it with a couple of shades of green SU Marker pens, plus the deep red for the berries. It's stamped on the reverse side of some scrap of the hammered card I cut the card blank from. I really like the difference in texture and it makes for a clearer image to use the flat side of the card. Surrounded by a larger embossed square and popped onto dimensional pads, I like the way it stands out.
It's a bit scary that it's now December... I haven't made all my Chrimbo cards yet... I'd better get my skates on!
