LESS IS MORE TODAY

Hello crafty friends! Time to share my card for the Less is More challenge, but I could not make up my mind. The first one I did is clean, but is it simple enough? I decided to make a second card that is definitely CAS so I am entering it in the challenge, but I’m going to show you both of them to get opinions on the first one.

The challenge this week is a RECIPE 3 - 2 – 1. This week we have a simple idea for you to use as the focus of your cards. All that you need to do is to incorporate 3 of something, 2 of something and 1 of something else!

The one I am entering into the challenge:

This card has 3 words, 2 swirly border cuts, and 1 Washi Tape.  Lots of white space, not a lot of embellies.  I think this one definitely fits the Less is More guidelines “A design of card with clean lines, minimal elements, areas of white space and few or no embellishments.”

SUPPLIES
SIZE:
5.5x4.25″

Here is the first one I made, and I am second guessing my decision to use this many elements, and that is why I made the other card.

This one has 3 squares, 2 rhinestones, 1 mouse image.

Spellbinders Lacey Squares are under the mouse image which is a Spellbinders standard square.  The white panel is embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder. The sentiment has two corners rounded with a corner rounder and has two purple rhinestones.  The image and sentiment are from Sweet N Sassy. I colored the image with Copics.
