Less is More

Here is this weeks card for the Less is More” challenge

001_cropThe theme this week is to make  a single layer card with embossing – heat embossing or dry embossing.

After playing with some stamps and embossing powders I was not happy with what I had created so started to look for something different.  I decided to try embossing on Kraft Cardstock which I hadn’t seen before. I went for copper embossing powder to keep the colours in the same colour range and I like the simplicity of it!

The stamp is Inkadinkadoo I think and the wording is Paper Artsy.

Mandi said...

How fantastic copper on the kraft
Super card, although I think the Just for You wold have been better slightly nearer the design in the centre
But, that's just nit picking!
Thank you so much
