Less Is More: Silhouettes

Although I had envisioned a very different card when I first bought this set, I love that today's Less Is More challenge "forced" me to try it in a CAS style.  Clean and simple cards keep everything in stark relief - black/white, humble/royal, death/life ...


  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Season of Love
  • Paper: black, white, Best Creations Gold Glitter cardstock
  • Ink: Staz-On Black
  • Accessories: Martha Stewart border punch, Memory Box star die
P.S. This is my second post for today.
P.S.S. If you are a Copic "user", be sure to check out yesterday's post as I have some special gifts for you!
