Less is More - Week #250 - One Layer

 It is one layer week at Less is More this week and this week our theme is Santa.  I will never forget the first year I made all our Christmas cards and took them to the post.  I'd added layer after layer and loads of embellies - the postage bill was HUGE!  I've tried to have a good stash of one layer Christmas cards ever since!

First card uses a cute stamp from Little Claire, I bought lots of their stamps when I was at Sincerely Yours with Chrissie a few weeks back.  The sentiment is Dylusions.  I've used Koh-i-Noor pencils to colour it (remember them?) and added a touch of Glossy Accents to the specs, though it is hard to see.
For my second card I cut a Memory Box die and used the negative as a stencil, brushing DI Blueprint through it.  The sleigh and starry trail are both Inkylicious stamps and the sentiment is Stampin Up.  They use Versafine Majestic Blue and WOW embossing superfine Platinum.


  1. I just love that Santa sentiment Anne, I could do with one of bah humbug!
    The other is fab too, must get me a Santa sleigh some time too!

  2. Fabulous cards Anne .... love the words on the first one (didn't half make me smile!) xx

  3. Fabulous cards Anne .... love the words on the first one (didn't half make me smile!) xx

  4. Very witty first card and yes always good to keep the postage costs down. Clever idea with using the die as a stencil on the second card. Such pretty colours and such a beautiful card x

  5. Fun and fabulous Anne! Loving that sentiment on the must one in particular! X

  6. Great cards, Anne, the first one made me chuckle!

    Love and hugs

  7. That first card is super funny! Your second one is so beautifully; the brushing is stunning! Have a colourfull week!

  8. Anne - the first card is great fun - love the sentiment!! The second card is simply fabulous - the WOW Platinum really stands out, and it looks shiny too (something I find difficult to achieve on my photos)! Must put it on my wish-list!

  9. Ha!!! Love the sentiment on the first card, it's so funny and that Santa image it's just adorable.
    On your second card, I love the stenciled ornament image and the beautiful image of Santa's Sleigh and Reindeers. I specially love the trail of beautiful star dust he's leaving behind.
    Fabulous cards Anne, thank you for sharing at "Less is More".
