Less is More #342 Your Perfect Holiday

Hello there.  Time is just flying by.  We have a fun new challenge starting today at Less is More.  Challenge #342 is Your Perfect Holiday.  Our guest designer this week is our June winner, Pauline from Crafting with Cotnob. Once again, our generous sponsor this month is Seven Hills Crafts.











Who doesn’t love a tropical paradise holiday with palm trees and a beautiful sunset?  But my tropical paradise would be comfortable warm and not hot.  When it’s hot, I just don’t function.  This is why I used cool colours and not the traditional red, orange and yellow.  The image and sentiment were black heat embossed on a white Stitched Rectangle panel.



A reverse circle mask was then die cut from a Post It note and distress inks were blended on with a mini blending tool.  Excess ink was wiped off with a tissue and the panel was mounted with fun foam on a top folding card base.  A few clear sequins finished off the card.



Linking this one to the following challenges:

Only one perfect holiday, so only one from me this week. 😂  Be sure to check out my team’s personal blogs for more inspirations.  Hope you can join us this week.  As always, remember to keep your cards CAS and to follow the challenge guidelines.  Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful week!
