I know I don't normally post at the weekends but I have a lot to show you this week and I couldn't bear not to enter my favourite Less is More challenge! This week the ladies at LiM are simply asking for clean and simple thank you or congratulations cards. This is particularly apt since I'd like to say not only congratulations to them for coming up with such a fabulous idea for a challenge site and making it so successful, but also thank you so much for all their hard work in maintaining it.
Chrissie and Mandi - these are for you!
I love the texture this Square Lattice embossing folder creates - perfect for male and female cards. It's easy to put just the bottom of the card front into the folder and send it through the Big Shot.
A strip of the gorgeous taffeta ribbon tops the embossed section. I've allowed it to overlap the card and have trimmed it on the diagonal.
The real focus of these cards is the amazingly intricate butterfly...
...which comes from a very, very special stamp set.
Strength and Hope is not only a truly gorgeous stamp set but it's also a way of helping the fight against breast cancer. Stampin' Up is donating £1 for every set sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation which is dedicated to finding a cure for this grim disease. My hope is that everyone that loves stamping will choose to add this set to their collection - it costs £15.95 in wood mount and £12.95 in clear mount. You can order yours by emailing me or giving me a call on 01280 820593.
Thank you so much for dropping in today. I can't wait to see what all the other LiMettes have been up to and I'll be coming to see you soon!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
