The challenge this week at Less is More is entitled Diamonds. My first thought was of the sparkly things, but then I thought of the shape and that is what I went with here.

I cut the Sizzix aperture die from a corner of the front of the card and placed another piece of card inside to cover the holes. This was overlaid with another Sizzix flower die cut from grey pearlescent paper and a simple hello sentiment die cut from MFT.
This second one again employed a die from Memory Box, used to make a stencil  and covered with embossing paste then adding a sprinkling of Glamour Dust once the stencil was removed.
The butterfly was cut from a Soft Drinks can using a die from SSS and coloured with alcohol inks.
The sentiment is from WPlus9, again twinkled with Glamour Dust.


  1. These are really beautiful x

  2. The phrase 'class in a glass' springs to mind to describe your beautiful cards Chrissie. Understated elegant use of the die cut on your first card - very creative! I adore the use of the embossing paste with glitter on the second; stunning! Hope you have a superb week. xx

  3. Some great techniques and textures this week, Chrissie! I love that you created the first card just from dies - it looks so elegant in black and white and the combination of the metallic butterfly with the sparkly embossing paste is fabulous too. Have a great weekend x

  4. Two gorgeous cards! I love the elegant cleanness of the first one, with its eye catching black and white colour scheme. The second card is lovely with the very clever make of a butterfly from a drinks can and the intensity of the alcohol inks. Just beautiful! x

  5. Fab cards again Chrissie, loving the classy B&W one and that dazzling butterfly one is gorgeous too.So sorry I am late commenting,lots going on ;) Viv xx
