I'm running behind getting my photos taken again! I finished the cards on Sunday, but somehow my week has just slipped away!
The challenge this week at Less is More is to create a card using green and gold. As usual, I have several cards to share with you. Here goes....
For this first card I used the September sketch from Happy Little Stampers, so I'll put putting it there too. I fell in love with this sketch. I used card stock in several shades of green to fill in some of the rectangles formed when I added the thin green strips. The sentiment is from PTI and is heat embossed in gold. The finished panel was adhered on a white card base and popped up using fun foam.
This second card I cut using a cut file from the Silhouette store. I cut the holly in the white panel then put a piece of dark green card stock behind it. I also cut just the berries from some gold foil paper and then popped those dots over the holes in the original cut. The sentiment is from SU. I believe I'll enter this card in the Merry Monday Challenge also, as they are requesting cards with "holly".
This card did not look like what I had in my mind when I started it! I inked up some card stock with several shades of green DI, then cut a stitched circle with a SSS die. For the ornament, I heat embossed a background in gold on some white card stock, then cut out the ornament with a Spellbinder die. I added a bow at the top and popped the ornament on the green background. The sentiment doesn't really show up very well...but it's heat embossed in gold also. I used the large rectangle stitched die to create the stitched border on the card base.
It's always exciting to me when I can create a card that fits more than one challenge! I'm usually amazed when I accomplish it too! Which card is your favorite?
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit! Hope you'll come back soon! Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
