Hope you are all well, I am just settling down to watch Strictly, but thought I would quickly post my card for the both the current Less is More and Mel Jen Design challenges.
Over at 'Less is More' the challenge is 'Leaves' and its a 1 layer card. I can honestly say I felt my heart sink a bit when I seen it, as I used my only leaf stamp for last weeks challenge. As all our crafters know, sometimes we have to think outside the box. So somehow I had to come up with a card which represents 'Leaves' without adding any additional layers.
At Mel Jen Designs the challenge was 'Orange' so I know I had to somehow incorporate this colour into my card.
Well here it is
So how did I do it? I used the 'Swirls and Curls' digital background paper from Pink Petticoat in Papaya, then cut out the leaf design using my CraftRobo/Silhouette machine, so that you could see the back ground paper behind when folded in half. To finish it off I added a simply sentiment. Looking at it now I wish I had dry embossed a border to the card but it is submitted now and serves me right for trying to post quickly before Strictly. It is a really simple card, but I admit it did take a while to think of.
Well Strictly has started, so enjoy your Saturday night and I will be back tomorrow.
