Hi everyone! Happy World Card Making Day! The challenge this week at Less is More is to create clean and simple (CAS) cards using the colours turquoise and lilac.
But first, a big thank you to our October sponsor, Dies to Die For!
For my first card I used the ink smooshing technique to create a background on a panel cut from heavyweight 300gsm white card stock with the largest of the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. The Distress Ink colours are Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord. I then stamped and die cut elements from My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday using Neenah Solar White card stock and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured them using Promarkers as well as a silver metallic pen for the smaller ribbons. The large ribbon was covered with a Ranger Perfect Medium bullet pen and then heat embossed using Ranger Super Fine Detail Silver Embossing Powder. The bear was adhered directly to the ink smooshed panel, and the smaller presents were raised using foam pads. The sentiment was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
This card was so quick and simple to make, perfect for bulk card making or a set of notecards. I cut a top panel of heavyweight 300gsm card stock, and used one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders to create a stitched opening across the length of the panel. Using my MISTI I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental onto the upper piece of the panel with Versafine Onyx Black. I then cut a piece of designer paper (plain black circles on a white background) from the Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection by Jesse Edwards. I used Promarkers in Lilac, Turquoise and Cobalt Blue to colour random circles. I then assembled the designer paper and two parts of the panel on a heavyweight 300gsm card stock base. Easy!
