"Less is More" Challenge

Week 14 over at the Less is More Challenge and this week it's a "Colour Challenge - White on White".

I really love white on white but I've never done a whole card white, so I was really up for this challenge when I read it yesterday. However, after a sleepless night and a whole day pulling my hair out, this might be the last 'white on white' card I ever do!

To cut a long story short, first I was going to paper piece, then I was going to use some Tim Holtz Dies but nothing was turning out quite right, so I rummaged through my dies and came across the cuttlebug 'male' and 'female' dies and voila, here is the end result:



Hearts (embossed with 'love') and male & female diecuts mounted onto textured card squares.

Roll on next Saturday, surely a one layer card must be easier than this! Lol!

Thanks for visiting everyone and a big hello and thank you to all my lovely followers.

Have a great week & happy crafting

He, he, he, loved your comment and I am just exactly the same as you. But I think you have made a really lovely and different card, wish I'd have thought of the square's idea. I also found bought flowers, looked cream against white cardstock.
