Less is More

The challenge at Less is More this week is to use two stamps

Sympathy cards are not ones that we really want to make but when the need arises this is usually the card that I will make

I am also entering it into the challenges at

Addicted to CAS  Texture -the die cut border and the topper edge is deckled

Sister Act card challenge  Anything goes

Top Tip Tuesday  Monochromatic cards

Crafty Sentiments Designs  anything goes

The topper is a stamp from Crafty Individuals stamped using Memento black ink pad.  There is no name on the sentiment stamp so I can't acknowledge the designer.The border has been done using the Tessatina die from Memory Box. Simply layered in black and white adds an elegance to an otherwise sombre card


  1. Very elegant monochrome card

  2. Hi Margaret - this stamped image is an ideal choice for a sympathy card and it blends so well with the beautiful MB border.
