Less Is More....Part 3!!!




I hope you are enjoying the Sun wherever you are at the moment....here in South Wales it has been gorgeous all day.
We went for a walk and bite to eat in Swansea Marina earlier - very nice :)



On to the matter at hand - Less is More Acetate Challenge ....................Part 3

I made this card for my FiL's birthday today.....

Yesterday I said this card would be using acetate in a different way to my first two.


Less is More Acetate Number 2
Less is More Acetate Number 1

Here I have embossed a piece through my CB (can't remember the name of the folder - I do wish they'd print it on them!) and mounted it onto a piece of blue card. This was a little too blue and didn't match the clothes of the gorgeous LOTV Die Cut image, so I lightly brushed over the acetate with a green ink pad.
I got rid of the line and float in the image and substituted it for some cord and a 'Happy Birthday' embellishment.



Must get working on LiM #4 for tomorrow
....................................what shall I do next????????????




I'd also like to enter this card into LOTV challenge which this week is 'Happy Birthday'

  5. Oh my gosh ... card number three for the acetate challenge? Well done!!
    Love the use of the bubble EF. I agree, its annoying that they don't print the names on the folder. :(

    Great coloring on your LOV stamp as well. I have that one but have yet to put it to use.
