Less is More with Cuttlebug/Sizzix


At long last I've made a card for the Less is More challenge. Really wanted to play along but not my usual style and also find it quite difficult to play with less. It's also my first Christmas card of the year. Think it's going to be a Less is More Christmas this year and keep the more elaborate for family, less stressful I think since always running at the last minute at Christmas!




Thank you for dropping in by and for all the lovley comments you have left over the past week. Hope you have a lovely weekend and the Sun shines where ever you are!

I'm presuming that your inspiration is the Saltire Carol... although you didn't mention it!
It's a great card and it's great to see you at Less is More again.
Thanks so much

Hi Carol

Gorgeous card great use of that embossing folder (I've got that one too)! I think I might do LIM Xmas cards this year too - just because they are CAS doesn't stop them from being oh-so-stylish as your one goes to prove!

Take care

Gorgeous card Carol. Love the embossing. Would you be surprised if I said I use them both quite often! I went to a crop today and managed to make 2 Christmas cards. Quite productive for me!! I seem to be quite into white cards this year with a touch of colour.
