Purple and Gold

That's the theme over at Less is More this week.

Some sad news on the blog as Chrissie Stokes is scaing down her duties. Life gets in the way sometimes, se I wish her all the best and to enjoy the grandkids, that's precious, my mum and dad never get to see we know...

Ok onto the card:
I used a stitched circle diefrom Marianne design to cut out a window, off centre, traced the opening and then stamped the bauble, also off centre as I thought that would look nicer.

I used a new stampset from Studio light (stampLS08) a Christmas layering stampset.
I used Memento dew drops to build it up ( lulu lavender, sweet plum and elderberry).
I heat embossed the topper thingy in gold (Papermania) as well as the sentiment (Hero Arts Deer 4x6).
then drew a line with edding gold pen to the bauble as it's hanging.

  1. This looks fabulous Maaike, so classy and really beautiful! I love how you've offset the bauble and angled the sentiment. It ads so much visual interest. Awesome card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  2. thank you! I forgot to say I angles the sentiment to follow the line of the window..more or less...;-)
