Less is More Baby


I had intended making this card on Wednesday after checking the entries to the Less Is More challenge, this one by Daen'Ys caught my eye and I thought I'd CASE it .. .. however, it wasn't to be. After a fruitless search for my Cuttlebug postage die and baby pram mini embossing folder, I gave up.  I did find the small embossing strips though and used a couple of them to emboss the lace edge and swiss dots.  I cut out the Nellies Choice heart die twice, one in white with embossed hearts and one in pink, then cut off the edge of the white heart to layer on top of the pink, finishing with little pearls made with my white Waco pearl maker pen.  I also added pearls along the dots on the lace border, but resisted adding any to the edges of the card, after all, Less Is More!  I did add the ribbon as a last minute thought and a pearl in the centre of that, together with the stamped text by Cuddly Buddly - simples!

The Charisma cardz challenge is for NO flowers this week - yeh, this fits!

  5. Oh this is beautifully classy & I love that pink heart border with the little pink bow & pearl centre. The pearl embellishing picks up the Swiss dots embossing beautifully.

  7. Just gorgeous Annie, I love all the pearls and what a great idea to cut off the edge of the white heart to show the pink one behind.

    It's such a long time since we met, we must have a get together soon. I'm home monday if you'd like to drop in? Lots of new dies for you to rummage through LOL
