Hey there!! Happy Sunday... I'm here with my card for this week's Less is More challenge. Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us this week to use a "recipe": find three previous Less is More challenges and combine then on your card.
As I pondered the extensive list of past LIM challenges I knew that whatever three challenges I chose, they must work with the quote I wanted to use. Last week Our Daily Bread Designs released its 4th Anniversary collection of scripture, quotes and sentiments. As a member fo the ODBD challenge team I got the opportunity to contribute to this collection. My contribution was the beautiful quote from Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken", which can be found in Quote Collection 1. I absolutely love the way Kelley, the owner of ODBD, designed the stamp and the font that she used. For my card I wanted to just let the quote take center stage and shine. So, the three LIM challenges I chose are: Week 15 - embossing; Week 49 - predominately purple and Week 55 - die cuts. The image was stamped on white cardstock using dark purple ink and die cut using a Spellbinders plain rectangle die. The largest die from the same set (I think large plain rectangles) was then used to emboss a frame on to the front of the purple card base. I chose to use a purple card base because I felt it would allow the sentiment to stand out even more than on a white card base. So... instead of lots of white space, I have lots of purple space...hee!! The sentiment panel was then adhered using foam dimensionals. Super clean and super simple!!
Thanks for stopping by....
