Less is More week #336 and #337 - OLC coloured card base


Hi LIMettes! Welcome to a new clean and simple card making challenge with Less is More, and this time it's a two week challenge and we're teaming up with AAA Cas Card Challenge too! It's also a one layer challenge for a bit of extra stretch! We want you to make a one layer card using a coloured card base - any colour apart from white!




So what does the joint challenge mean? After the challenge is over, in two weeks, there will be one joint winner. The sponsor for this challenge (as well as being our monthly sponsor) is Happy Little Stampers and the lucky winner will be announced on in our showCASe post on Friday 28th July. You MUST enter both challenges to be in with a chance of winning the prize! The winner will be invited to guest design in a future challenge at both Less is More and AAA Cards. Whoop!

Our sponsor this month is Happy Little Stampers.



The guest designer for this challenge is Kylie from Happy Little Stampers so do pop over and leave her some comment love!

I've got two cards for you today and they were both really quick and simple. I chose a red base and a green base and decided to get ahead on Christmas cards. I stamped Woodware JGS180 Winter Wonderland and sentiment on the green base, heat embossing in white. I stamped Stampendous CRQ146 Cling Snow Brackets on the red base, heat embossing in gold. 




If you have time to visit the other DT blogs you might find some extra cards for your inspiration. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck with this challenge!

  1. WOW! Esther these are fantastic and can't pick a favourite. I love the dramatic gold embossing against the red cardbase when I first saw it and love how you've got 2 Chritmas makes in the bag already! The green one packs a punch in white embossing and lends itself perfectly for your little snow scene. Totally adorable. Have a great weekend. x

  3. Great idea to get ahead on your Christmas cards. The red and gold embossing is classic and elegant. The green with the white embossing just pops beautifullly. Really striking. Have a wonderful weekend.

The gold embossing is so striking over the red and so festive ! And the white embossing over the green is a delight for the eyes ! I did think that the one you presented on the DT blog was also perfect and very beautiful ! Have a beautiful Sunday and a fabulous coming week ! xx

  9. Full of stunning drama and elegance here Esther! Your two colour combinations are superb and both cards are so dramatic in their simplicity. I have that stampendous stamp but always forget to use it (the shame!) sorry for the incredibly late visit - had an incredibly hectic time with preparations for this UK visit - but better a late visit than never, eh? xx
