Less is More 55

The challenge at Less is More is to use punches or die cuts.  I chose to use the fabulous "Sweet as Can Be" stamp and die set from PTI.  For my first card I also used a Fiskars edge punch to frame the main image.



I wanted to see if I could get a similar look on a less layered card, so I made another card using scoring to frame the image.  I didn't think I would like it as well, but I actually do.  Happy surprise. :)


Busy week, so I haven't had a chance to check out the other creations at Less is More.  Hopefully I'll be able to hop around on Thursday or Friday.

Supplies:
Paper: PTI
Stamps: PTI sweet as can be
Ink: Color Box pink & chestnut roan, Memento desert sand

Super cards, I really love second, the icecream is a great image on its own and the scored lines work perfectly.

I love both of these! The scoring on the second card really dresses it up!

I can't imagine eating an ice cream like this without it going everywhere but it makes a fabulous image Ann! I like the scoring and the scallops equally too.

Now, see....I really didn't think I needed this set from PTI...but your gorgeous card is making me rethink it!! Love the scored lines...really sets off the ice cream cone! BTW...when you use a stamp and die, which do you use first? Do you cut and then stamp? If so, how do you get them to line up? I keep struggling with this!

Really like the score lines on the second card. They let the ice cream cone take center stage - which it deserves with its polka dots!
