I recently bought a couple of stamps from Chocolate Baroque from a range called Big Bold Backgrounds. They lend themselves to all sorts of stamping and embossing effects, and being 6 inches square make quick cards quite achievable.
I noticed that Less is More are running a challenge at the moment to make a card using string or twine and Stamping for Pleasure have a Rudolph Day Challenge which runs until the end of the month, so I thought I would enter this card in both challenges.
At Less is More they require a simple card with just one layer, and on this occasion with the use of string or twine. I began with an A6 white card. I then stamped the Snowflake Shadow using Memento Dye Ink in Lady Bug onto white stamping card. I cut this down into two equal pieces and attached a piece of white card in the centre to attach the twine to. I noticed that one of the cards demonstrated used a lovely flat knot, so I thought I would give it a try. You will find a great tutorial here. Lastly I added a sentiment.
