One layer cards


No matter how many of these cards I try to make, I still struggle with the Less is More concept. However, I aim to keep  on, here are another two which will go in my notelet gift boxes.

The Lady in Red is a Darkroom Door stamp as is the sentiment. She is coloured with cosmic shimmer paints and edged in Barndoor distress ink. I used masking tape to help keep the lines straight.


These three old friends I have had a while, sorry cannot remember the stamp maker.
The sentiment reads, 'Friends are the most important ingredients in the recipe of life', this I fully agree with, friends are so important to us all.
There are two challenges this week for one layer cards.
Crafty Card Makers challenge 50 ,  One Layer Cards.
Less Is More  Week 23 and the theme is Something with Legs.

There are some great cards on both of these super challenge blogs.
Sorry I won'y be able to visit you all for a few days, we are off to Melrose in the Scottish Borders, once again leaving the family in charge of the household.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.

  11. I'm not sure what you're struggling with on the less is more concept because these pieces both seem to me to be very clean and simple and wonderful!

    Really! I love them and think they're very nice with lots of "white" space and simple concept.
