Spotlight on Inspiration

I made this card yesterday and a friend suggested it would be perfect for this week's Less is More challenge. I don't often do a card as minimalist as this one, but it just seemed right at the time.

So, in a thorough departure from my usual style, here is my card:

I've used one of the new Designer Frames textured impressions embossing folders and if you are having trouble with this one, here's the Big Shot "sandwich" that worked for me: multipurpose platform with both flaps open, premium crease pad, embossing folder with card in, second premium crease pad on top. That's right, no cutting mats at all.

My colour combo was inspired by a display of bathroom towels I saw recently at my local Spotlight store - I thought they looked stunning together, so that's what I've used! Just goes to show you can find inspiration anywhere!

Materials used:

  • stamps - Creative Elements
  • card - island indigo, cherry cobbler, whisper white
  • other - designer frames embossing folder, dimensionals

Hope you find some inspiration around you today.Thanks for calling in.

Gee that photographed well cause it certainly looked stunning IRL. That creative elements set is definitely on my must buy list, esp with that gorgeous swirl. I also wasnt really impressed with the designer frame but you have showcased it so well. Just gorjuss, Miss Kez
