The Less is More Challenge this week is a One Layer with the theme of 'Leaves'. My first thought was to use stamps, but I decided to use a punch I haven't used for quite a while.
I used a Martha Stewart Double Edge 'Vine Trim' punch to make a mask. I attached the punched vine to the card with removable glue, then masked off the sides. Using a dauber and a 'Mowed Lawn' Distress Ink Pad, I inked over the punched vine. The sentiment is a very old wood mounted stamp, which is probably a NBUS one - it certainly didn't look like it's been used before! . I stamped the sentiment using the same ink pad. I think this card is probably more suitable to send to a man. If I need a more feminine card, I'll add a few tiny punched flowers along the vine.
