Sometimes less is more

After making many large fancy cards i decided to have a small break and go down the less is more route. I purchased a lovely paper pad whilst shopping at suzicrafts, its by first edition and is called Spring Drop, the spring colours are gorgeous and really brighten up a dull day. I dug out some pearlescent cardstock and made some DL sized card blanks, for the first card i used ultra sticky doule sided tape (you know the type, the red one) i placed 3 strips along the bottom of the card and sprinkled with doodlebug sugar coating glitter then i made 3 paper flowers from the spring drop paer pad the large one is from a 3" circle and the smaller 2 from a 2" circle. The paper flowers have been going around for a couple of years now and are so easy to make, so when you dont have that perfect matching flower in your stash just make your own, simply cut the circle into a spiral and then roll it up.
The second card ive layered one of the double sided papers on top of each other and used one of the stickers that come with the papers, stamped it with happy birthday then layed it and adhered it with 3d foam again the flowers were done in matching papers.
I know i will be using these papers a lot more as they are gorgeous.

Im entering these cards in the less is more challenge blog.
