Less is More #19 - One Layer In The Frame


Since the Less is More Challenge started, I really look forward to saturday mornings, can't even settle to breakfast until I've logged on and checked the new challenge!  Well, this week our submissions have to be just one layer and the theme is 'In The Frame'. 

I've recently realised just how far behind my planned Christmas card making schedule I am and the year is flying by far too fast !  So, I'm trying really hard to make at least one or two cards each week from now on.  So, today's card is one more added to my Christmas stock - result !

I recently acquired this lovely stamp from Pez-a-Doodle and thought it was ideal for today's challenge.  Stamped in Memento Cottage Ivy ink, with an embossed frame around it created with a rectangle nestie.

There will be more cards made in this design, I think, as I am really pleased with the simplicity of it.

Thanks for popping in to see my card, hope you're having a great weekend.

Wynneth the fact that you have a Christmas card making plan means that you are ahead of most of us and that you have one made means you so much more ahead of me. This is lovely and I really like the subtle frame.
