The Less is More challenge for this week is a Sketch (top right) and my entry was made using the Warmth & Wonder Hostess set in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.
I stamped both the image and sentiment on Naturals White cardstock with the new Gold Metallic Encore ink pad (also available in the Autumn/Winter catalogue). The tree was punched out with the Extra Large Circle punch and matted onto a 4" square card blank using dimensionals and the sentiment banner positioned on top.
Because most people have lots of cards to send at Christmas it's very tempting to buy them because you simply don't have the time to make your own, however, armed with a simple image, a punch and the new metallic ink pads (which is also available in silver) you could make several of these in a very short space of time. Obviously you don't get the same shine with the ink as you would with embossing but I think that's a small price to pay for the amount of time saved!!
I hope you all have a great weekend and, hopefully, I'll be back with something to show you for 'Simples Sunday' tomorrow
