Less is More - 4 years old

Less is More is four years old this week and to celebrate their colour theme of pink and grey - I made them a Birthday card :)
I used:

- A6 white card blank, with each corner rounded using a Woodware punch

- a snippet of white card stock with the image stamped using Memento 'Gray Flannel' and a much loved Anita's stamp, with no name on it

- paper pricked round the edge of the image layer and also rounded the corners using the same Woodware punch

- stamped the image again (still using Memento 'Gray Flannel') onto a snippet of spotted paper from Wild Rose Studio's 'Wintry Christmas' paper pack

- cut out the parcel pieces and paper pieced them onto the main image. When paper piecing it's always best to put the glue onto the card rather than the fiddly little pieces you're adding - a handy tip I got from Jules ages ago

- then just added the 'topper' onto the card using thin sticky pads

Happy Birthday to everyone involved in running Less is More, plus all the kind sponsors - long may it continue!

  17. What a cute, fun card. I love how the sentiment runs down (or up) the package. You did a fantastic job of paper pieceing. Thanks for the tip of putting the glue on the paper, what a good idea and less messy.

  23. Just love this card, CAS and classy, love the stamp, not seen it before. As you should know I am a big fan of paper piecing and this is excellent.
    Now the good news.....

    I have bought a prezzie for Parsnip back from my holidays and it is still alive so after I have got it accustomed to the change of temp and found what it really likes to eat I will be sending it off to you, when I have found a carrier that will deliver it... watch this space.
