One layer Thank You

This week' is One Layer week at Less is More.  Having had a wonderful day at the NEC with Chrissie, Lady LIMette herself,  I decided to play with some new stamps I got yesterday and came up with this Thank You card.  As ever, I love my tree stamps and I found a brilliant new (to me) stamp company called Inky Doodles with some amazing stamps that create patterns.  Along with the patterns, I ended up with some solid topiary shapes which work really well for kiss stamping.

 I used a WOW dotty stamp to kiss stamp onto the tree and added a Hero Arts sentiment.  The green inks are Olympia Green Versafine, with some Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough around the edges.  There was just too much white space (sorry LIM!) so I added a double embossed line along 2 sides.

I'm also entering the following challenges:
 CAS-ual Friday - embossing
Challenges and Candies - clean and simple
Simple Create Too - give thanks
Simon Says - clean and simple

  2. Thanks for the white space comment... its so hard to leave cards alone with a lot of white space, but doesn't thant embossing make the card more elegant?

  3. It's a lovely card - I don't have an embossing machine, and can't afford one at the moment, but I do think that people (you included!) have some beautiful elegant effects using embossing.

  4. This is FAB! Love that tree.. the colors and the extra pattern from the kiss technique is amazing! :) Thanks for playing along over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
