For Less is More this week - beads


Hello sweet bloggers,

At Less is More the theme this week is beads... I have plenty of beads in my stash but just could not think of a clean and simple card. Anyway here is my take on the beads. Simple card but sweet I think. These hearts were bought in Singapore the last time I visited. They came in a pack and I have thrown away the the flap on the top which had their name. The embossing folder is a Sizzix one and the beads came free with a magazine called Card Making and Paper Craft some seven years ago. This is the first time I used them. Talk of hoarding, yet again. Lol.


I just realized that I could also enter this card in CAS(ual) Friday this week for their no stamp challenge.

Monica, I've never thought of using beads like that on my cards - when I have used them, they were usually dangly. THIS is a terrific idea! I will be using it, too! Beautiful card. Dry embossing ads such an elegance and richness to cards. Your die cut is very pretty. I was GOING to ask for the name of the cuts LOL -- don't you just hate that hoarding feeling? I'm glad you have brought these precious little wonders out to put on cards. hugs, de
