less is more

This week over at less is more it's a colour theme " A touch of red"


Another dl card..told you a was going through a phase lol
I machine sewed the "stems" directly onto the card blank
then made a couple of scrunched up flowers. They are all shimmery IRL, but sadly you can't see that on the pic :(
The border was scored using my hougie board
The sentiment was computer generated and I added a few gem to finish

I'm so glad that this challenge is taking off in such a huge way! Have you seen how many entrants it's gathering every week now? And here was me thinking I was just about the only card maker still out there who favours the CAS style..how wrong can you get eh? Long may it continue I say ..The entrants never fail to blow me away! Can wait to have a browse of all your stunning entries again this week and thanks for any you have left me they are all very much appreciated

You will be pleased to read that I managed to control myself and not eat all the toffee apple crumble before the guests came... only just though lol

Aileen said...

This is so wow! Very impressed that the stems are sewn. x

Hello From Texas said...

WOW. Double WOW!!. I just love your card. You used three elements and still made a perfect CAS card. I admire anyone that can sew on a card. I have to do it by hand if I sew, I just cannot get it to work in my machine. :( And you added bling ... my fav element.

Regarding CAS cards; I think most people like them, the problem I have with them is that they are hard to make. I've only just begun to post my CAS cards; it is really difficult to get something as gorgeous as your card from CAS. :) TFS!!

Fiona said...

Saw this on the Docrafts site earlier but hadn't realised that you had stitched the stems - wow! I really love it. x
