Simply Less

I had some time to play in my 2 favorite challenges -- One Layer Wednesday - red and white, and Less Is More - a star.   I suppose I could of combined these 2 challenges, but I was in the mood to create 2... so, I did.


On my OLW card, I made an ornament template (Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments) out of acetate and sponged the inside, I then used GKD Heirloom Ornament stamp set, and stamped on top. My Merry Christmas is from Repeat Impressions. I know the challenge was red and white, so I hope this works having my mc in black...  EDITED: This also works for Giovana's challenge over at Stamp TV - a One Layer Christmas card.

For my Less is More CAS card, I used the newly released GKD stamp set, Strength & Hope.  My star is cut with Spellbinders Stars, out of red glittered paper. 
Thanks for stopping by~

Two fabulous cards! I think your red bauble is so elegant! And the tree - just fab!

Good grief! These are both super!!! The one-layer with two shades of red and that big, bold ornament would be very appreciated in my mailbox for SURE (hint, hint) and the tree/star card shows marvelous synergy between the images and the sentiment. Truly a fabulous creation!

Anne said...
