Today I have the great honor of being guest designer at Less Is More. I'm chuffed about this because Less Is More is my favorite challenge blog (along with those blogs where I'm in DT of course!) and I try to enter their challenges always when I can! When I started card making and blogging my cards were less CAS and I was searching for my style -I didn't like those super frilly cards but didn't yet have eye for designing simpler cards either. Then I bumbed into challenges like Less Is More and started to find the clean and simple style inside of me! I just went through my old blog Runaway Cards and found my first entry to LIM from December 2012. :) The 2 last years have been rather hectic on work field and I haven't had much time for challenge cards but things have settled now and by today I have not missed one LIM challenge from the beginning of 2017! :)
Anyway, onto my card and this week's LIM challenge!
It's a recipe week and the recipe is Use a Frame. My first idea was to make a shaker card and after playing with some other options I went back and did the shaker. I used a fun tag die from Sugar Pea Designs that allows you to cut a window -this was perfect for making a framed shaker. I chose Easter stamps by PTI and Avocado Arts (unfortunately not an active company anymore), did some simple Copic coloring and put my card together using a bit of grey card and a die cut border for accent. The small, glittery and clear shaker bits and pieces have such pretty shine IRL and the yellow card I used shines as well so this card is very glittery! I'm sending this to my boyfriend's sister and his nieces, they are 3 year old twins -I hope they'll have sun shaking!
I'd like to thank Less Is More for inviting me to guest design. I hope you ladies understand what an influence your challenge blog has had for my card making!
Thanks for popping by!
