Less is More Week 160 - Metal


I'm standing in at Less is More again this week and the challenge is to use METAL on your clean and simple card.  Chrissie, Mandi and Jen always come up with really innovative ideas and I've been racking my brain about this challenge!  On Monday night I happened to be rummaging through the clearance bin at Stamp Attic and found some HUGE brads. Sorted!  I've no idea what they are meant to be used for, but they make fab wheels for my little car :).  Car was cut with my Portrait, sentiment is Simon Says, IRL the ink on it is a very good match to the brads.  I cut the road freehand from a scrap of card.

My second card uses snowflake charms in a fairly standard way.  The IndygoBlu border stamp and the sentiment have been silver embossed with WOW detail onto mottled blue card.  Charms are attached with Glossy Accents.

  2. Wow Anne - that border stamp makes a beautifully ornate snow-laden cloud and I love your little snowflake charms! The car is brilliant too - I love the way the exhaust smoke overlaps the frame of your card - and much better for the environment than real exhaust fumes! Vicky x

  9. Your car card is brilliant, it really looks as if it is rolling along, nice texture on the card as well. I love the Christmas card, I always tell myself to start now and always leave them to the last moment. Thanks for standing in for Chrissie at LIM.
