Less Is More - Script

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a good week.  I'm a bit late with my Less is More card this week.  Mainly because I struggled with this one, it seems to be the one layer weeks that I find the most difficult.  The theme this week was to use some script.  Now I don't have many wordy stamps and I must be the only crafter that doesn't yet own any distress inks, so that ended that.  What I do have is a wonderful CD from Pink Petticoat with some script on so I decided to use that...

My next question was how was I going to get my script onto a ONE LAYER card.  A-ha, the thought came to me in the middle of the night... I would make a mask, so I did.  I used a Craftwork Cards Build a Corsage plastic template, drew round it and cut it out, I then adhered it to the front of my card using Stick n Spray, I then stuck my card blank with mask to a piece of A4 card and ran it through my printer.  I was so chuffed that it worked.

Here's a close up.  I went round the edge of the petals with fine glitter and added a few crystals to the middle. I used black memento ink for my sentiment and voila.

Hope you like it, got to go now and prep 20 mothers day cards for a Rainbows group so they can make them tomorrow night.

Edit - I forgot to mention I'm going to also add this card to Wishcraft - Waste Not Wednesdays and its the first time I've used the template and ages since I've used the Pink Petticoat CD.

Bye for now.
