Less is More

Just a quick post from me this evening with a card for this week's Less is More Challenge #71 - one layer + flourishes.


I used a Crafty Individuals flourish stamp I have had for several years and never inked up until now!! I also stamped a sentiment and then just added a few black gems to the flourish + a single pink heart gem to the sentiment to finish.

Although the card is very simple, I have to admit it took quite a few goes before I was even vaguely happy with it, and then it was an absolute nightmare to photograph - not least because the only smooth base cardstock I had for a one-layer card was extremely heavy, so wouldn't lie flat despite the best efforts with my bone-folder to smooth it down!!

Stamps: Crafty Individuals flourish; Unity "Insightful Meadows" sentiment;
Supplies: gems from my stash.

Back tomorrow with a card for my dear dad for Father's Day :-).

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
