Less is More Challenge 10

For this card I used a Nestabilitie Long Rectangle to make the surround for the sentiment which is a stamp from Bildmalarna and was another item in the goodies from Donna at Bearly Mine Designs I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with pink embossing powder. The sides were made with a Cuutlebug border embossing folder and the centres highlighted with pink jewel flowers.

This second card was the result of the first try which went wrong in the middle so I stamped this little cutie called Little Mimosa again from Bildmalarna and coloured her with Promarkers, mounted her over the mistake and hey presto another card rescued. I chalked around the centre panel just to give it a bit definition. The embossing is another Cuttlebug folder and another border folder, with just a few green jewels to highlight the flowers.

Can anyone out there in Blogland tell me how to flatten the card after it has been embossed as it seems to bend around the embossing, especially on the second one.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, your comments and advice are greatly appreciated.



  1. Hi Anne, I hope you're all settled here in the UK once more.
    Well done with that rescue card, I hate to see things going to waste.
    I can several 'edge lines' on your embossing I don't know if that was what you were concerned about but to avoid those you can make your own version of a Cuttlebug 'B' plate by cutting pieces of card smaller than the dimensions of your embossing folder and stacking them (you can Selotape them together) until you have enough to make the thickness of your 'B' plate. You use this card stack instead of the top 'B' plate. In this way if there's no pressure of the edge of the folder you don't get the lines.
    I hope you can understand that little lot!
    It's a pretty card anyway and thanks for joining us!

  2. Both cards are beautiful, but I particularly like the first card which is in true LIMette style. Lynn x

  3. Pretty card Anne, I echo Chrissie really and would like to also say if the sentiment was a bit darker it would draw you eye there first
    See oyu again
    Thanks so much
