I checked the Less is More challenge at the weekend and found the the new theme is Foliage. It also has to be a One Layer Card.
Great, I thought, back in my comfort zone, and reached for my trusty well used favourites.
Then I had a look at the examples and decided to do an unashamed CASE of Jen Nelson's card. I liked the cream background, the colours and the slightly Victorian feel. I hope I have managed that here.
I always plan to make Christmas cards ahead of time but rarely get more than a few done. I don't really want to think about it in the summer.
Well here is one. That makes a grand total of erm..1 but early days...
It's quite little, about 10cm square. I like to do plenty of stamping and inking on a card but in the case of Christmas you sometimes want to produce quite a few quite quickly. This has a satisfying amount of colouring on it so I felt as though I had done something. It's not perfect and I wanted liquid pearls for the berries but I couldn't find the right colour so maybe I'll get some and make a few more. I use a white gel pen instead.
The stamps are from Inky Doodles.

Jen, I hope you don't mind this humble copy.
