We've whizzed around to another Saturday morning so it's new challenge time at Less is More. As there are five Saturdays in April that means this month we have a Lucky Dip challenge for you and our theme is...
Use Designer Paper in a CAS Way
With every Lucky Dip challenge comes a Guest Designer and this week we have one of our fabulous LIMettes, the lovely Esther of The Carnelian Wood. Esther participates every week and shows so much support by visiting so many of our entries! It's a pleasure to have you as our Guestie this week, Esther xx
So, this week I have three cards to share with you. Here's the first...
I wanted to create the look of a wrapped present for this card. I took some red gingham patterned paper and cut two strips. I also used a die set to create the bow. As the bow had a stitched edge detail I used a straight stitched detail die to die cut along both edges of my two strips. On a white cardstock panel I adhered the two strips and topped with the bow before stamping my sentiment. The panel was then adhered on 3D foam. I was really pleased with how this one turned out, it looks so much like gingham ribbon!

I used some digi paper for this next card...
I started by printing the designer paper. I then cut two strips of white cardstock, and a strip of the paper the same length. I adhered the paper flat to the cardbase and the two white panels on 3D foam. I then cut the scribble die cut from some pink cardstock and on a strip of green cardstock heat embossed the sentiment in white. These were then adhered across the aperture.

I don't use designer paper nearly enough and I have a fair amount piled up in my stash. But I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed creating these this week. Why not have a rummage and join in the fun this week!
