Less is More Week 237 - 'Congratulations'

Wow, such a wide brief for this week's theme challenge over at Less is More - 'Congratulations'. 

I already had the germ of an idea after making my snippets card for this last Sunday's Snippets Playground - where you can win a Woodware punch the same as I used on my card, plus another one shaped like a darling little house. Just make a snippets card and come around to play. This is what I made for Less is More:
Probably one of the simplest cards I ever made!

I used:

- 4" x 4" square white card blank

- snippet of black card stock, measuring 2" x 1.5"

- two snippets of metallic linen effect card stock, one gold and one silver, punched using the Woodware 'Jigsaw' punch (approx. 1" at the longest part) and the two pieces interlocked and stuck onto the black oblong piece of card

- sentiment from SU's 'A Word for You' stamp set, stamped using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink

After the thinking process, this was (obviously) made in a jiffy :)

    1. I was sitting here with a load of left over jigsaw punched pieces, just playing and jotting down ideas after making the Sunday Snippets card last week :) And then by sheer fluke, the Less is More theme popped up a day or two later. Serendipity indeed Mary Anne :))

  11. What a fabulous idea Di and the pieces in gold and silver against the black stand out beautifully. With a slightly different sentiment this would work for an engagement, wedding or anniversary card. x
