Less is More

Well it's Less is More time again and this week Chrissie and Mandi have asked for a One Layer Card and a Frame.  I decided to make an inked rectangle for the frame and managed to waste a fair bit of card in the process - what with one  mistake  or another,  in the end I threw in the towel and slightly cheated.   I was going to the print sentiment directly onto my card with Craft Artist and decided to print the coloured rectangle as well.  Then I used my new Clarity Alium stamp and embosed with white detail embossing powder.

I hope you like my card, I will probably make another attempt at this challenge later in the week

  43. A wonderful hybrid card. I love making them myself because I can't stamp a sentiment straight to save my life. The colour of the square is perfect. Thanks
