Less is More - Week 15

Theme  -  Embossing

I know it's nowhere near Christmas time but you can never start on the cards too early.  I bought a "mystery" box from Darkroom Door afew months back and in this amazing box (it included papers, tons of stamps amongst other things), were lots of their beautiful photo chips.  This one is from their Prague collection and just reminded me of Europe at Christmas time - nothing like here.


Very happy with the results, thought maybe not very CAS (not sure I will be able to part with it when the time comes).

What you need
Cardstock - PTI black, pure poppy, white
Stamps - PTI Fancy Flourishes;  Verve Glad Tidings (sentiment)
Ink - Versamark;  Memento Tuxedo Black
Embossing Powder - Zing! Glitter Silver
Ribbon - SU  Real Red grosgrain
Photo - Darkroom Door "Prague Collection)

  1. This is very lovely although your flourishes have taken up rather a lot of the white space making it a little more, more than less if you see what I mean. Mandi and I do love our 'White Space'!
    Thanks so much for joining us... it's a super card nevertheless.

  2. Very nice! I like your sparkly flourishes, I like the image, and I especially like that beautiful ribbon. I, too, would have a hard time parting with that card come Christmas time!
