Tools: Tonic Studios Die Sets - Affections Heart On Mother's Day, Monarch Arch, Gothic Border Punch, Grand Calibur
Paper and Card: Deja View, oyster card, textured pearl card
Embellishments: rhinestone crystals, Zva Swirl, Organza Ribbon
So I made this CAS Card for Mother's Day by die-cutting 3 evenly spaced heart cut-outs from a strip of lime green textured pearl card after decorating the long edges my favourite Gothic Border punch. I then adhered Deja Views patterned paper behind the apertures and mounted the strip onto my card base with 3D foam.
I photographed my card for this post and put it to one side in my craft room. And there is sat, calling to me, calling me, calling me...."Add more, I'm just not finished"....
So after two days (in fact, this afternoon, just as I was settling down to write this post), I just had to add more! I limited myself to three more crystals and a small organza bow, but I personally feel happier with this "bit more", it seems more balanced to my eyes. So version 2 is the one directly below and version 1 is the one at the top.
So is less more? Have I gilded the lily? Which version do you prefer between version 1 at the top or version 2 above?
There's more Mother's Day craft inspiration over on my blog, DipsDesigns, do pop over for a visit.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
