Less is More week 51 Theme

Evening all and a very special welcome to my new followers, I'm delighted that you have decided to follow me:)
Well here we are, another week over and time for a new challenge over at Less is More. It's theme week and the theme is "Cut it Out". So I need to produce a card with a hole or aperture. 



I decided to use my Silhouette and cut an abstract swirls and flower scalloped circle. The base card is white and I punched out a fancy circle and stuck down some patterned paper inside with the cut circle on top. The sentiment was created with my xyron printer.
I also wanted to share with you a card wrap that I cut which I think is absolutely beautiful but definitely not Less is More!!!
Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment on my work, it's much appreciated!

Hi Val,
From one Sillie girl to another...both your designs are gorgeous!! Love your LIM card, but the envelope is fabulous!! I download that design this week, but I haven't tried cutting it yet. Yours looks beautiful in those colours:)

Bea said...

wow Valerie these are stunning - your silhouette certainly can produce some great cut work. I do like your LiM entry though as ir looks as though the image in the card is stamped.

I adore the die cut circle on your LIM card. While the envelope is much "more" - it is simply stunning!!

Love this card and the orange with white really 'pops' This is an impressive bit of very elaborate cutting on the wrap - must investigate the Silhouette.

Both are brilliant Val - the second cutwork is spectacular and someone would be delighted to receive it. Neither are cards that would be binned by the recipients; that's for sure.
