Today’s cards are for this week’s Less Is More Challenge. The cards needed to be one layer and were to feature “Foliage.” Texture was given by adding score lines and embossing to the card bases.
Since the only embellishment was a sparkly ribbon, a little interest was created by dotting each of the berries with a white gel pen.
Here is the second card.
A closeup shows the added score lines and embossing on this card as well.
The embossed leaf shape was made by cutting a cardboard template with the leaf die that coordinated with the stamp. After stamping the image, the leaf template was placed on the cardstock matching it up to the image. It was then run through my Cuttlebug.
I was having so much fun, that I made one more card with the holly and berry image. It is dressed up just a bit more with a sparkly brad, some paper piercing and a bright red card base, so it does not qualify for the Less Is More Challenge this week. But it was fun, nonetheless!
Thanks for dropping by today. Happy Crafting!!
