Alright I have done this card for the Less is More Challenge and of course there are only 10 hours left till closing. Really need to decide what I want to enter in and get organised enough to do so that people can see my card for longer than half a day before the challenge closes. If I could just take my crafting room with me when at mum and dads that would help but ahhh well no point in whinging is there.
I love how this card turned out. NOW do you want the easy five step version or the complex 25 step version. Lets go with what I should have done.
I had a piece of beautiful patterned paper with little gold and black music notes on it. That gave me the inspiration. I then thought of the music notes die. So I cut the piece of pattern paper to the width of the card base then used a stitch die that is just a straight length of stitch and cut edge so I cut the piece of paper at an angle to go with the layout on Less is More. I then cut the music notes die once in gold card stock and twice in white. Glued them together and laid across the piece of patterned paper.
I gold embossed the sentiment using Miss Misti to line it up and make sure I got enough ink on the card to emboss. Forgot to rub the gold music die cut and patterned paper with the non static cushion so had a little bit of embossing powder stick there but its less noticeable in real life than on the photos.
Nothing stuck on the black card stock so thats something. I decided to finish it off with the red heart gem as I felt it needed just a little something.
Now if your wondering about the long version that I of course did. I die cut the music notes from the patterned paper then of course I had to make sure I kept all those weeny teeny little bits and pieces and glue them back in then line up for the die cut piece to go in properly and of course there were bits that were slightly out of alignment so more adjusting. I did start out thinking I would use the original die cut music piece from the patterned paper but as soon as I cut it I thought 'no, gold, would be better'. Well at least I know I can do again in short version.....
Better late than never. Hope you all enjoy your visit, forgive my spelling mistakes and come visit again.
