One Layer Nightmare

Hello there and welcome to my blog. A really quick post today I am off swimming before the rush lol!

I thought I would try my hand at the challenge over at Less is More which this week is One Layer with the theme New Beginnings. Now you think one layer there is not much that can go wrong with that - hah!! This is my third attempt and I have since thought of a good idea that I wish I had tried (mind you this seemed a good idea until I tried it)!

I decided to do a Wedding Card and used the new heart die that my daughter got me at Christmas - bless her she thought you only used them once and that was it!  I embossed it on some white linen card stock and then used silver embossing powder for the sentiment and hearts which are from Waltzingmouse stamps.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Less is More - One Layer
Papertake Weekly - Its All New - I tried a new technique - one layer card

Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments you leave,

Beautiful card Susan - very elegant. How do you use a die so that it doesn't cut but embosses the design?
