Less Is More: One Word and One Word Only!!

This week's challenge at the Less Is More blog is to use Just One Word.  You can decorate around it - but only one word.  I HAD to play because I just received a Papertrey Ink order that included their Wonderful Words dies. 

If you look closely - the word is cut into the white cardstock and then the piece is backed with the pomegranate.  The problem with this is that I had to use tiny tweezers and a glue pen to stick all the center pieces of the letters.  It made this card slightly less than truly simple.  We will be doing this at our church card group in January and my plan is to cut the word out of the pomegranate CS and glue it to the white - completely avoiding the hassle.  I don't think it would make a significant difference, do you?

How have you managed to keep stamping through this busy season??? I have hardly had time to scratch! I think ... even with that extra effort ... this still qualifies for LIM! (But I always seem to get it wrong for LIM ... so what would I know???) (cheeky grin!) Hugs xx

That's a great card...I have those dies and not used them yet....meant to order the holiday ones, but I'm thinking if they are this fiddly I will give the die a swish of spray mount to make it easy....of course I'll have to go outside to do it!
