The final Less Is More Challenge for the month of July is a fun one:
You could use paper piercing, eyelets, sewing, brads, piercing dies... Many fun ways to play along!
I went with piercing dies and decided to make some more Christmas cards for my stash. I've done about 50% of all the Christmas cards that I need this year so I'm doing pretty well! Last year was a disaster, I think I got only 1/4 made of what I would have wanted to make... So this year I started already in January! :)
Card 1: Santa Claus (above)
My first card is made with goodies from my friend Milla... Only the sentiment stamp (Penny Black) is from my own stash! I've colored the hilarious MFT Santa with Copics and added lots of Stickles details. I love Stickles for Christmas cards although I don't use it often otherwise. The pierced circles are made with a Memory Box die. A couple of sequins finish off the card. I quite like gold with green, it's a festive color combo!
Card 2: Christmas Bunny (below)
The window die with beautiful faux stitches is by MFT... And from Milla again. ;) The Mama Elephant bunny (and yep, from Milla again...) is colored with Copics and I've added Stickles to her wings. The background is made with a stencil (Memory Box), some ink (already forgot what I used!) and an old make up brush. The white heat embossed sentiment is from a set by The Greeting Farm. I've played with clear, glittery nuvo drops too -they are hard to see in the photo but I've added them here and there in the inked background.
Our challenge blog is filled with fantastic DT cards for this challenge... And it's worth checking out the personal blogs of our DT members -there's often extra inspiration on offer there too! I look forward seeing what you'll create. Play along and you could win a fabulous prize from our July sponsor, Happy Little Stampers! Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful weekend.
