Less Is More Week 42 - Silhouettes

Week 42 at Less is More and the theme is Silhouettes. For my first card  I've cut the three reindeer from the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge. The greeting is computer generated and the lines are Papermania glitter stickers. There are tiny red gems on the noses of the reindeer but you have to look closely.



My second card is another reindeer - this year Dasher by Stampin Up. Stamped in black ink and embossed then matted onto black card. Another computer generated greeting and finished off with some Diamond Dust. This is my second attempt at this card. The first one I did some pricking in the top corners before adding the glitter but it was too much so I had another go and definitely think it looks better - less is more after all!




My third card is not really an entry as it doesn't fit the definition of the a silhouette but it was inspired by the challenge. It's an American stamp which is stamped and embossed in black on yellow/gold card and layered on black card. The greeting is by Wild Rose Sudio from the Girly Greetings set
