Less is More - 3 Squares

This week the Less is More challenge is to use three squares and I knew right away that this would work for a congratulations card I needed to make.


I used the 5cm square stamp from the Artylicious Peacock Glory Themeplate designed by Glenda Waterworth. The image was stamped three times on white card and embossed with copper kettle EP, cut out and matted onto copper metallic card. The squares were brought together using an organza ribbon.

I am really enjoying taking part in this challenge and feel it is developing into a regular group. It is so nice to see everyone else's work and visit their blogs.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to visit and leave a comment, I really appreciate them.

  16. I have to apologise for the blue appearance - the base card is white linen. Unfortunately, because of the non-stop rain, the light was poor when I did the photo.
    I might try it on blue though - good idea.
