Addicted To Stamps & More #334...

Hi! Another challenge is up on the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge blog and this time it is my favourite theme.

I love cards with clean lines, lots of 'white' space and minimal embellishments. Here is the one I made for this challenge.

I used the Cross Stitch Flower stamp set by Altenew. I found this is the toughest set to align till date! It takes a lot of practice and a few tricks to get it right. The gorgeous results once you crack it are absolutely worth it! I started with a stack of white panels and kept trying until I was finally satisfied. I am still not absolutely perfect, but getting there. Here is a closer look at the flower.

After discarding a few trials, I was left with four usable pieces. You can see the other cards I made with this set here and here. I used the Sea Shore mini ink cubes set to stamp the flower. The sentiment is from the Birthday Greetings stamp set, again by Altenew. 

To finish, I trimmed the panel and added a strip of silver paper towards the bottom. The stamped panel is popped up on foam tape. I also added some silver sequins from my stash.

I hope you are inspired by my card. You can visit the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge blog for more amazing inspiration and link your beautiful creations.
