Less is More - week 33 - Anything goes for 1000 entries!

And there's more ..................

I've gone with die cutting for these cards - I'm giving stamping a rest! The tree was cut on my Cricut and I added some Candi (coffee bean) with faux stitching around the edges. The base card is an iridescent gold. The font and dots were by Helen at  'It's all fiddle fart'  (where you can buy the font). I typed it out on the computer and rubbed pencil on the back to make a sort of carbon paper. Then I pencilled over the letters to give me an outline and finally went over in felt tip pen.
The second card is very similar but I used a pre-embossed dotty base card in a peachy/orange colour. Both cards are 5 inch squares.
This time the Candi is Sahara, the font and dots as above, inspired by the very talented Helen
