Less is More Week 8

Hello everyone, the card I have to show you today is a first for me....a DL card......I have never made one this size before but I love it and I think it looks really elegant in real life! I am entering it for Less is More Week 8 where there is a sketch to follow. My fellow cupcakes and I also have a monthly challenge between us and this month the theme is C for.... so my entry is C for CAS.


My first shot shows the full length....quite difficult to get a photo without it looking like the card is tipping forwards!!!..... not sure I have achieved this!!!


And the second shot is a close up. For my card I have used some gorgeous matt white card and I have embossed it with my swiss dots folder on the bottom. The red satin ribbon is from my stash as are the jewels. The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse....I masked off each word so I could position them one over the other rather than in a straight line.


Supplies
Card/Paper: White card
Stamps: Waltzing Mouse - Fancy Phrases set
Embellishments: Ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots folder
Thanks for looking x
