Less Is More Challenge - My First Time Around

Hello, friends!  I was cruisin' around some of my favorite blogs and I came across Brenda's card for the current Less Is More blog challenge.  The theme for their Lucky Dip this week is...


So, knowing that I love clean and simple cards, I decided to check it out and play along for the first time.  WOW!  What a cool blog and a great challenge! 

Anyway, I created one of my all-time favorite clean and simple go-to "Congratulations" wedding cards using my favorite wedding stamp set by Hero Arts: (LL731) Wedding Celebration.  I think this was one of the first stamp sets I purchased many years ago, and I still use that sweet bride and groom whenever I need a wedding card!  I try to keep the stamping simple, just the image and the sentiment.  On this card, I embossed the card base and some dots on the black matte, then I distressed them with white ink so they would show...

Materials Used:  Hero Arts (LL731) Wedding Celebration; Anna Griffin (2483R) sentiment; Cuttlebug & embossing folders; Nestabilities Labels One; Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper; ultra fine glitter

 I especially love to add ultra fine glitter to the bride's veil and dress...

I hope to post a few more cards I made for this challenge in the next few days...right now I'm off to get the kiddies to bed.

Thanks for stopping by...take care!
