LIM Take another 3

This week over at Less is More, Chrissie and Mandi want us to pick any 3 of the last 29 challenges and combine them into this weeks card - and with that many to choose from, it was obvious I would be doing more than one (although for me there were only 28 to choose from as there was no way I was revisiting acetate voluntarily!!!)


I opted for:

Week 2 - Flowers or Trees
Week 6 - Off the Edge
Week 14 - White on White
Week 15 - Embossing

I started with a 12cm white card, and cut a lot of smaller squares (6, 3, 2, 1.5 and 1cm) and corresponding layers half a cm smaller for each.  I embossed the larger squares with a snakeskin embossing folder and stuck those to the card (some embossed up, some debossed up).  I stamped 3 different branches from an elzybels set in embossing ink, "off the edge" of the smaller squares, for the two larger branches I stamped them across two squares each so the image goes off the edge of one, and onto the edge of the other, and embossed all with white tinsel ep.  This ep does has a little silver glitter in it - hope it still counts as WoW.  I added clear square crystals to the 1cm squares and finished with a sentiment from the same set in silver (sorry didn't show up in white!)

That's it for me today - need to go and box up all the cards ready for tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.
