I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Less is More #8

I made this card using the fabulous new sketch on LESS IS MORE. Also you needed to make a tall card (which I find very hard to do LOL)

The card is for a work friend who is going to USA to get married next week. I stamped the background randomly with 3 different hearts then coloured with sakura glitter pens. The "Bride & Groom" are made using Sizzix hearts die layered up.

HEARTS & GREETING STAMPS:
Freebies from mag
MEDIUM:
Sakura glitter pens in clear and purple
TOOLS:
Cuttlebug
Sizzix hearts die
Swiss dots embossing folder
OTHERS:
Bazzill card & gems from SECRET CRAFTER

Hi Jane.
This card is beautifully done. The Less is More theme really works here. I love the elements you have brought in to this uncluttered layout. I love it.
Hugs,

Those hearts are such a clever idea... I've not seen that before, they look fabulous!
The background looks great too!
Not quite DL dimensions, but it's decidedly not square!
Great to have you join us Jane!

Very clever with the punches. I must get myself heart punch or dies.

I also like David Tennant and really missing him as the Doctor. I guess onwards and upwards for him, huh? You might like this little Tardis lamp I made for my 9y.o daughter who is Doctor Who mad.

cheers,

Lovely use of hearts and really like the Sakura colouring, lifts the card and helps the background to pop:-)
