Less is More - Sketch

The challenge at Less is More this week is a sketch:

Here is my card:

This is another card which went to plan.
I cut the base card, drew a curve using the handle of a rotary cutter which came to hand. I cut the curve and then cut another piece of card to lay under it. 
I sponged and stamped using Meadow and a Card-io leaf stamp. I fiddled slightly curving the sentiment and deciding where to place it. I attached the green panel with foam pads and tape and then ... stopped!

I'd considered adding some twine or thread around the top but really, I hope you agree, it doesn't need anything else.  
I was also inspired with a design for a Christmas card along similar lines so I'll try that before I forget.  

Sadly, I've just heard about a friend who is in a bad way so I think this will be in the post very soon. 



  1. Nope, it doesn't need any more, you stopped at just the right point, it's a fab make


  2. Lovely inking Alison, I like the leaf stamp that you've used:)

  3. Cas-tastic and a super duper elegant take on the sketch!
    Love how you've used a curve rather than a straight line to define the layout! Clever and gorgeous. Thanks so much for playing along at Leeds is more. Sarah x

  4. Perfectly CAS, you were right to stop when you did, it's lovely as it is. And great for male or female
    Thanks for sharing with us.
