Less Is More week 43 - a bit of bling

This week at Less Is more the recipe is 'a bit of bling'. Easy for me as I just love my Swarovski hotfix crystals and a few usually find their way onto my cards!

I love this Nordic Winter set so much and have made several different Christmas cards using the set so far. My favourite stamp of all of them are these 2 little reindeers.

They look wonderful embossed in white on this vibrant blue card by A.Muse. I used super fine white embossing powder so that the reindeers didn't lose their tiny stitched detail. A little lilac crystal in the center of the snowflake and voila!

Thank you for looking today! I am off to see all your wonderful creations for this week's challenge now with a nice cuppa :)


  1. How lovely and unusual. I love the blue and white together-great card.

  2. That is a cool stamp! Like an old favorite snuggly sweater. Looks great of the bright blue!
