This week's CAS-ual Fridays has a black & white challenge with the very stern admonition "no other colours will be allowed, not even a speck!" lol! I thought it would be fun to see if I could combine it with this week's Less Is More challenge, which turned out to be an aperture card. Hmm... it would have been far quicker to make two cards, but I got there in the end.
I have a Memory Box Christmas tree die and I remember Mustavacoffee, a LIM regular, making a gorgeous card where she had cut the aperture with her die and then added the swirly bit. So I faffed and fiddled about and cut numerous trees with my die to no avail. In the end I cut an aperture through the card and then through black card and lined them up and attached the tree to the inside so you can see it. The false start here was when I sprayed the tree with glue but no matter how hard I tried it would not line up how it should. Note to self: if something is not totally symmetrical, always check which side you should be spray glueing...
I've added some punched snowflakes with black or white gems, a piece of lacy net and an Indigoblu sentiment.
I'd like to show you a couple of LIM related photos. This week I was lucky enough to win the December prize from Lots of Lovely Ribbons, thank you to Mandi and Chrissie and also of course to Lots of Lovely Ribbons for this brilliant prize that came this morning.
