Missing You

Something completely different for you today - I decided it would really challenge me to have a go at the Less is More challenge this week: a one layer card featuring stripes. One layer! Not an easy task for me at all and initially all my ideas involved striped paper - duh! that's a second layer Kerry!

In the end I think my card is pretty cute and I'm quite happy with how clean and simple it is. Definitely a step outside the box for me.

I used gloss cardstock so it would have a bit of strength to stand up on its own, plus gloss takes really well to embossing.

DD19 will be able to use this when she goes back to Melbourne for uni and leaves the boyfriend behind!

Materials used:

  • stamps - Aviary, Three Little Words
  • card - white gloss
  • ink - black StazOn, real red
  • other - stripes embossing folder, ruler, permanent marker, stamp-a-ma-jig

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, I love it! Great way to emboss the front, and I like your tip about using glossy card - didn't know it embossed well.

Marina said...

Lovely card : the embossed stripes are great.

I love how you embossed the front with the stripes, Kerry! I've had that embossing folder sitting in my drawer now for months unused. This idea is going into my CASE file :)
