Less is More #339 Pierce Your Project

Hello there.  We have a new challenge starting today at Less is More.  This week’s challenge #339 is Pierce Your Project.  We want to see anything to do with piercing on your card.  We want to thank our generous sponsor this month Happy Little Stampers.  And as mentioned in my post last week, there are still a couple days left to enter their huge giveaway.










This is the second card I made for my teammate Sarah G.  For some reason I had it in my head that her birthday was on July 22, so imagine my surprise when I realized on July 11 that her birthday is actually July 12.  So I re-did her card before sending it.

The pierce frame (discontinued) was die cut twice from white cardstock and stacked for dimension.  Freehand Florals layering stamp set was used here.  The flowers were stamped with Shades of Purple and Summer Afternoon inks and the leaves with Green Fields ink.  The sentiment was black heat embossed on the inside square.  Shaded Lilac distress ink was blended with a mini blending tool for the background.  Clear shimmer on the flowers and a few clear sequins finished the card.


And here’s the original card with the frame turned, a different sentiment and Spun Sugar distress ink for the background
