Yellow - mmmm, definitely not my favourite colour for my cards...a touch here and there maybe, but not as the main colour. I think a lot of you feel the same. When I saw the Less is More challenge theme for this week, at first I said to myself "no mam, no way", but then I thought "come on girl, why do they call them challenges!
As I said in my 'Fairy' post, these challenges are making me use long forgotten stamps - I am totally ashamed of myself, but I bought this lovely wattle stamp about 4 years ago, and la la la la la (covering your ears) it has never seen ink!!!!!!! What more perfect stamp could we have for a yellow challenge than 'Wattle'.
The company that designed and produced this stamp, and the gumnut one on the inside of the card, was a small family owned business based in Sydney, and sadly they retired, and closed the business last year. They were a lovely couple, and the stamps were high quality. Over the years, I bought quite a number of them, but wish I had more.
The inside of the card co-ordinates with the front
A close-up of the lovely corner stamp, made by the same company that made the wattle stamp. I don't know what the white lines are - must be a light flare on the lens.
My card base is made with my new A4 300gsm hammered white cardstock - it feels like velvet. The greeting is a gold peel-off sticker from my HUGE collection - if I live for another hundred years, I don't think I will ever use them all.
This card was made specially for the Less is More Challenge - Yellow.
