L-O-V-E

Love, love, love. Love, love, love. All you need is love! :) Yep, it's the time of the year when we all Linkstart thinking of l'amour, you know, good old fashioned LURVE. :) Luckily, the current challenge over at Less is More is to use one word on your CAS style card. I'm happy with the way my card turned out!!! Can you guess what word I chose? ;D

Here it is~

A closer look~



I L-O-V-E the way it turned out. ;) And I've missed doing some good old fashioned CAS cards lately. And I LOVE the white on white. Incidentally, I will be entering this into the Top Tip Tuesday challenge (anything goes) as well and I have a tip in regards to white on white!

TIP: If you want to have a lot of dimension when choosing a white on white theme, try dry embossing one or more of the white panels and leaving your main one flat. This gives more dimension to your fabulous white space! :)


I'm also entering this little gem into the DYSU color challenge and The Pink Elephant anything goes challenge, as well. I haven't been entering many challenges and have missed you all! I hope you come and play along with these fabulous challenges! Happy stamping!!! :)

I am smitten with this card with all the little notches and I really like how the colours are inside the focal point and yet the textures still surround it in a subdued way and does not take away from the card!! You are definitely right on the embossing tip on the white space! Good luck with all the challenges :D

Love your card :) Really I do and I like the embossed on it. I will try your tip on the white on white. I have used background colors when taking photos of my final pics (one of your tips) and wow! It makes a difference. Thanks again for the knowledge!
