Flat foliage

Happy Monday to you

I can't believe I'm five days earlier than usual for my submission to the Less is More challenge.

It's one layer week (so glad I actually remembered in time) with a theme of foliage.

I've made two Christmas cards using the same Dreamweaver stencil.

This one was my favourite until I stamped the greeting downhill :-(  It looked straight on the clear block too.  May just have to add a better one over the top.

I like the crass stitched look.

To get the writing through the stencil I had to ink the stamp and lay it face up on the desk then press the card down into it (I also dry embossed it first).

As an unrelated item, I also made another Christmas card (go me!) where the same image is stamped onto acetate and then you tuck the acetate into the border in the right to make it stand proud to give a three dimensional effect.

Enjoy your week.  Bye for now.
