Happiness is a handmade card



Less is More theme challenge - pops and bangs

Less is More have set a fantastic theme for their CAS (clean and simple) card making challenge this week. Cards need to include something that pops or bangs. Wow!

As always the Design Team have created some lovely inspiration cards and the gallery is filling up with some brilliant creations so do head over and take a look.

For my card I decided to use my new MFT diagonal sentiment strip die and a champagne set from Card-io. The cork is 'popping' out of the bottle!

Pearlescent card base from Anna-Marie Designs (frame cut from same card stock)
Gold card stock from my local printers
My Favorite Things diagonal sentiment strip die 
Clearly Besotted 'A Little Sentimental' stamp set ("Happy")
My Favorite Things Birthday Brushstrokes die ("Birthday")
Card-io Combinations Collection (fussy cut champagne bottle, glass and cork)
Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist in Heirloom Gold (splatter on stamps)

  4. Who can resist the 'pop' that brut champagne makes? Not me! Love your card Esther, it is elegant yet still embraces the fun theme. Beautiful diagonal sentiment strip die.
