LIM'in #41

This week's challenge over at Less Is More is to create a one layer card using "Leaves" as the theme of the card.  One layer cards can be so challenging because I keep wanting to add layers of paper!  However, once I complete a one layer card, I always love how it looks because it's just so simple and clean looking.  I love challenges like these because they push me to do something different.  For this card, I just scored a border around the edge of my cardstock and then heat embossed a leaf with some gold embossing powder.  After that was done, I just thought it would make a great Thanksgiving card for someone so I added the sentiment using a rich cocoa ink.


  1. It's a really stylish card - know what you mean about how good they look when finished, despite wanting to add layers. I have exactly the same problem. The embossed edge makes all the difference x

  2. What a lovely card and well done you embossing in gold, can never get gold to work for some reason hehe :)

  3. How pretty and simple. Love it! The gold is so classy.

  4. Simply beautiful!
    Thanks so much
