Less is More 15 One Layer-Embossing

Well here we are again for another  LIM challenge. This time it is for one layer and embossing, I have spent the last 1 hour going through my stamps and could not make up my mind which one to use as I do have my favourites but I am sure you do not want to keep seeing them time after time. For this one I just did some dry embossing at the top and bottom.

Recipe for this:
Cuttlebug border swiss dots
See-D`s Sentiment
Kanban Autumn Silhouettes
Archival Ink Jet Black
I would also like to enter this into the following  

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment I do appreciate them all

  3. SMASHING card - I KEEP looking at that Kanban set myself.


  4. Great card - how did you use the swiss dots folder and manage a smooth bit in the middle? x

  5. A super card Chris. Great tree and sentiment stamps. xx

  6. Fabulous card. Jo

  7. Hi Chris,
    Super card, I love the tress and the sentiment but feel that the sentiment block is a little large compared to the size of the trees... nit picking or what I hear you say... it's purely a personal view and others may differ most strongly.
    Whatever it's a great card!
    Thanks so much

  8. Hi again Chris, Pretty card, love the sentiment and great embossing :0) xxx

  9. Chris, I have to say I love black & white cards,but few people agree with me. Your card is Stunning. Hugs Rita xx

  10. I love these trees - but mine haven't seen ink!! I really like the texture from the dots - I tend to agree with Chrissie that a smaller sentiment would balance the image better. Nonetheless it's a fab card!

  11. Great card Chris :-) Sorry I am a bit late on the leap blog this week, have been feeling poorly so better late than never :-) Hope to see you next week :-) Elaine-xxx-

  12. FAB card Chris, if I may say I think Id have orientated the card the other way so that the trees were over the sentiment
    they are super and would even look good on their own...scary amount of white space or what lol

    Thank you very much!

  18. Hi Chrissie, love the card. Know what you mean about spending ages looking through your stamps, I do that every time with LiM and never seem to have the right one! Sarah

  19. Another gorgeous LIM card Chris. I'm too scared to try this style out as i'd be tempted to add so much more but you do it so well.
