Precious Butterflies Stampin' Up! Hostess Exclusive


Stampin' Up! Precious Butterflies Hostess Gift
The Less is More challenge today is a one layer card with the theme of 'use a flourish'.  I've taken mine from the gorgeous Stampin' Up! hostess set  Precious Butterflies, embossed it in clear and then sponged some cheerful colours over it to try and brighten this dull June we are having. 
To make the square in the middle of your card you need to cut a mask of your card with an aperture in the middle.  You can then stamp your image and emboss it before replacing the mask to add your colour.  You can also use the Colour Spritzer to add some texture whilst maintaining your single layer of card. 
A simple sentiment says it all and this one is from one of my favourite stamp sets Pocket Silhouettes.
Short post as I'm busy making my swaps for my trip to Vienna next week and trying to tidy up for my lovely MIL who's coming to watch the children. 
Have a great day!
