Less is More Challenge

This week's Less is More Challenge is "Off The Edge"

I don't have many stamps that would look ok "Off the Edge". In fact I looked through all my stamps and didn't think I had any that would work so I'd decided not to do this challenge. Anyway I was messing around on the old interweb, as you do, and I came across some Christmas stamps and then I suddenly remembered my new Christmas Tree stamp that is part of a set my mum bought me for Christmas.

So I stamped it off the edge in Black Stazon and added a Penny Black Sentiment which says "have yourself a merry little Christmas" then added some small green gems to the tree to add a bit of bling - hope that still qualifies as one layer otherwise I'll have to pick them off again!!!


Stamps: Penny Black, Papermania

I've just been to upload it to the challenge blog and realised it's not that different to the example card. Doh! I did try putting the sentiment in various different places but it didn't look right. Oh well it's the taking part that counts! :0)

I'm glad that happens to other people and not just me. I love this. That off the edge design works so beautifully. I hope the bling was legal. I'm not quite sure what the exact rules regarding layers are. I think this is great and well done for persevering when you thought you wouldn't be able to join in!

I agree that it's never to early to start on those Christmas cards (to avoid the panic in November!) and this card is super duper

Hi Fe-Fe
Great CAS card and no don't take the gems off they are fine The rule of thumb is minimal embellishments, which thy are and they serve a purpose, they aren't 'just in a corner' for instance
Thanks so much for entering again
