LESS IS MORE AND DARE TO GET DIRTY

Hi and thank you for stopping by my blog today! I am playing with Less is More again today and something NEW FOR ME!! I am playing with the Dirty Dozen at Splitcoaststampers in the Dare To Get Dirty challenge. 

I knew I wanted to do a white-on-white card with this new Inkadinado Christmas stamp and when I saw the sketch at Less is More, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I had an extremely hard time photographing this card, but I LOVE how it turned out! What do you think of that wreath? I have to give credit to Kittie Caracciolo (Kittie Kraft) for that gorgeous wreath. Her tutorial is here and I know I’ll be making more of these! Kittie, if you ever see this post, thank you so much for such a wonderful tutorial.

Here is a close up of the embossed deer.  It is so hard to show in the photo, but it is very pretty on the card!

I used my score board to score two lines over the top of the panel, added two borders at the bottom and ran a ribbon across.  I stamped JOY in the lower right corner and heat embossed it to keep the entire card white. 

Supply list for this card:

 

After finishing the white-on-white, I wanted to try another version using wheat and white.  I like it too but I think I like the all white better.  I used a different foliage punch for the wreath and added tiny punched flowers. The edge at the bottom is still MS but a different punch, and a punch at the top of the white strip.  I added 4 randomly placed “snowflakes” and stamped JOY in wheat.

Supply list for this card:

I hope you enjoyed your visit.
