Let's Celebrate


It's time for a new, and the final LIM challenge of 2020I am surely looking forward with hope about many things, to a new year.  Here at Less Is More, we finish up with the dreaded or beloved One Layer Card. Way back when this challenge first started, I was terrified of one layer challenges. I have grown to be a lover.


We are generously sponsored by CASual Fridays Stamps.

Our Guest Designer is Chrissie Stokes of Simply One Of A Kind. Chrissie is the founder of our challenge, and truly the Queen of CAS design. Please visit Chrissie's blog and leave her some love. Her work is truly inspiring!

I created a card that I just loved for this challenge, but when my alarm went off on the day the card was due, I became aware that I missed the part about the one layer card requirement. I had to punt at the last minute (really) with a different card. I must say that this card was made in record time BEFORE I went to work (5:30 AM) in a very short period of time, and I am incredibly proud and amazed that I pulled it off!!!  Card made, photographed and posted before jumping in the shower at 6:15!! Whew!

I used Winnie & Walter's Party On (circa 2017 - no longer available) for the string that holds the lanterns. I then used the small lantern stamp from The Party (circa 2015 - no longer available) to add the festive lanterns to the string and for the sentiment. I used my Prismacolor Pencils for the first time to color the lanterns and hearts on the string. I would say that it is pretty festive. Love the lanterns!

Please head over to the Less Is More Blog and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us to share your creations and for a chance to win. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple.

To be eligible for show CASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space. All challenge details are on the Less Is More blog. Good Luck!

You should be proud, Stephanie - your card is adorable, and festive! First time with Prismacolors? Your coloring is fab, too!
Well done, my friend - I hate to say 'see you next year' - see you next time! xx

Hi Stephanie! This is such a great CAS design and I love the rainbow effect! I have had my eye on a lantern stamp set for a while now and I think I'm going to hit the purchase button after seeing this beautiful card! Thanks so much for sharing this at the Retro Rubber Challenge #148 - They Say It's Your Birthday!

You have every right to be proud of yourself, not only making a card before work but making such a fabulous card before work.It's gorgeous and I love it.
