Less is More - theme challenge - three stamps

This week, the challenge at Less is More is to make a CAS (clean and simple) card using three stamps. This can be three individual stamps, or the same three stamps repeated multiple times.





I used a slate grey card base and matching layer. The stamping is from Altenew Vintage Roses - a rose and a leaf - plus 'wishes' which is part of a sentiment set from Clearly Besotted. All stamping is done in Ranger Perfect Medium and heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder in Gold. The 'birthday' word die from Clearly Besotted has been cut from matching slate grey card. The whole sentiment is done onto a vellum strip and then three sequins have been added.

If you want to join in with the Less is More weekly challenges, check out the blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

    2. Thanks Deb! The two ways I do it are a fold behind the card so it's stuck behind, or a piece or sheet stuck in top of the card using foam dots but with something on top of the piece of vellum to hide the adhesive underneath x
