Less is More Challenge #403

Hi there

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, I have been crafting away behind the scenes but haven't been able to share those makes yet.  Lots to come over the next few days though so stay tuned :)

Back to the purpose of today's post, and of course it's new challenge day over at Less is More.  And as August has an extra Satuday we have a Lucky Dip challenge for you this time.  Here is the cue card...

Funky Fossil Designs continues as our sponsor for this challenge so please do play along for a chance to win our monthly prize!

I only have one card to share with you this time but I'm excited to say...I have my first 2019 Christmas card in the bag! 

Here it is...

This was very simple to make.  I started with a stitched circle die cut and heat embossed the sentiment in copper.  This was then popped up on fun foam.  I then die cut the pine needles from green cardstock, the bells from silver mirri card and the bow from gold mirri card, and layered and adhered these in a cluster.

Materials used:

  • Stamp: Happy Little Stampers - Mixed Christmas Sentiments
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Copper
  • Dies: MFT Die-namics - Double Stitched Circles; Clearly Besotted - Tag Along Die Collection (bow); Marianne Design Creatables - Petra's Larix Larch; Xcut - Jingle Bells
  • Cardstock from stash

I really appreciate your visits, thanks so much for stopping by.  Please do pop over to the main Less is More challenge post for more inspiration from my teamies and to see how they've incorporated metallics into their CAS creations.  And the challenge, as always, is open for a fortnight so there's plenty of time to link up in our gallery.  Hope to see you there :)


  1. This is wonderful, Anita. I just love the stitched white circle "bauble" with the pine sprays and bells. The meatllic papers and embossing look fantastic. Wonderful take on the challenge! xx

  2. Fabulous, Anita ! Love your beautiful bow and jingle bells in metallic paper. Gorgeous CAS design too ! Enjoy your free week ! Hugs x

  3. Love this Anita! Your pines and metallic bell/bow combination are the perfect accent for your stitched sentiment circle; CAS perfection!

  4. What a brilliant, effective CAS card Anita! The pine needles are fabulous and look gorgeous with the little bells and bow. I tell myself I don't need a die cutter but *sigh* it is an essential isn't it!
