Diagonally

Creativity is like a muscle, it has to be exercised regularly 😀 I wanted to play with the Less is More Challenge #423 (Fuchsia, Yellow & Grey) along with the Freshly Made Sketches #443 by Lee Ann. After 3 attempts I came up with this clean design. I masked the top and bottom with two triangles before stamping with MFT’s grid background and white heat embossing. To define the edges I score this card base. Then I die cut, in grey, a Wildflower stem by Sizzix. The Memory Box Pinpoint Butterfly Trio was die cut in fuchsia vellum and glitter heat embossed. Yellow twine was attached to the flutter and I was finally satisfied with the end result.

Keep SAFE all, hope you are well, take care, HUGz, Joanna

Thank you LIM for the recognition, so much fun playing to your challenges 😀

  4. This is amazing! At first glance I thought you dry embossed part of the card. This effect is fabulous! The die cut and yellow string and butterfly finishes it off beautifully. HOW do you think of these things! You are the most imaginative card maker I know!

  5. Love the stamped and embossed grid on two of the sections – also the way the branch follows the diagonal line. A fabulous CAS interpretation of that sketch.
