Less Is More - One Layer, Rows

Well, as I said in the last post I really should be making my Christmas Cards.  But then the card I am entering for the Less Is More challenge is a Christmas Card - so it is another one towards the collection.

The challenge this week at Less Is More is to make a one-layer card with a design that is in a row.

I came up with 2 ideas & at first wasn't sure which one to use until I studied them closer.  I will show both here but it is the first one that I am really entering in the challenge.

In this card I have used, once again, the freebie snowflake from a recent issue of The Craft Stamper.  I stamped 3 images on the diagonal & then trimmed away the corner with a pair of scissors with a similar shape edge.  I stamped the greeting & cut around that too, embossed the edges & the edge of the diagonal cut. Then I placed the greeting on the inside of the back of the card to show in the cutaway.  I hope that little bit doesn't stop it being a one-layer card.

My camera doesn't show the gold too well.

This is the second card

I didn't make a very good job of spacing it - but then found that the greeting would sit between the top 2 images.  My stamping also was not as good as it could have been as one of the little stars on the bottom 2 images have smudged & just look like blobs.

Thank you for stopping by my little space in blog land I hope you enjoyed your visit - please stop & say hello before you leave.
