Challenge 2


This week at Less is More the challenge is to make a one layer card using ink.

After much deliberation and three aborted attempts at cards I came up with this one and yes, it is my first Christmas Card of the year and it’s only August!

I used a Crafters Workshop template to ink through using Cloudy Blue Adirondack ink and some Cut and Dry. I then stamped the bare tree using a Black Tuxedo Memento ink pad. The stamp is a Penny Black stamp (love Penny Black stamps!) and is actually called Nature’s Dance. The Seasons Greetings stamp is part of a Woodware clear stamp set called A Winter’s Day.

All of the items used for this card were bought at Scrapbook Sisters.

I’m off craft shopping today – yippee!!! - the only thing that I really need is some more A4 white card as I have used my last sheet making this card – so you see I really do need to go shopping Of course I may have to buy one or two other things too! I’ll let you know when I get back.

Great card Jeannie and although there is little white space, the overall effect is decidedly Clean and Simple.
