Less is More Week 2

This weeks Less Is More challenge was a one layer card to include a flower or a tree. This card did not turn out anything like what I had in mind when I started my design (it originally has a small square aperture for the tree image which was printed on the inside). Upon a bit of experimenting I was happy to keep the image plain and simple on the outside of the card. I love this retired Stampin' Up! set so was only too happy to bring it out of retirement for the evening.

This was stamped on a 10cm x 10cm card base of Very Vanilla. The greeting is from the free Sale-A-Bration set 'So Happy For You'. Off to write this and send it to my friend to wish her a very hopeful Spring filled good luck (hence the image of the blossom covered tree).

Happy crafting ;0)


  1. I have this stamp set too and I love it, but don't use it often enough!
    This is a sweet card. Is this the very bottom of the card, or is there a little space under the sentiment? It's difficult to tell from this picture... I hope there's just a little in order to give the image and sentiment space of their own.
    Thanks so mcuh for joining us and we hope to see you next week!
