3 Squares

The Less Is More challenge this week is '3 Squares' and you can find it here . I sometimes like my cards for the Less Is More challenges and sometimes i really don't, which is the case with this one, but I've left it too late to make another.

I embossed 2 lines across the bottom, but you can see the good in this piccy, and put a row of red gems between the lines. I stamped a little flower onto 2 white card squares and a little sentiment onto the other one. The flowers are coloured with pro markers and a tiny red gem in the middle.

  1. Hi Kate,
    Can you put your finger on the reason why you're not too happy with this card?
    Your colour choice? Your layout? Your stamps?
    It works well as it is, but is a little symmetrical. Maybe you could try putting the sentiment in the square on the right, that would take the eye from the left over to where the sentiment is located.
    There's not really anything wrong, maybe it's just one of those cards which doesn't give as much satisfaction as you thought it might.
    See you next week

  2. The card's fine Kate - maybe it's just a little too CAS for your liking?!

  3. Maybe you simply have the whole CAS thing nailed!! Super


  4. Lovely card good colour choice

  5. Sometimes its like we have to retrain our eye, or our muscle memory that keeps looking for more - more embellishment, images, colors, ect. This here looks great! You've used a fair # of embellishments, but it is all very CAS.

  6. Looks perfect to me, great colour choice too, great card. Teresa xx

  7. I like the simplicity of your card. I think it looks good. x

  8. Your card is great Kate.
    I think Id say if the squares were placed closer together, so that the row of gems were longer, grounding the design, rather than totally the same length
    Super CAS though!
    Thanks for joining us
    See you again mandi
