Less is More

Saturday means it's time for a Less is More Challenge.
Today the challenge is to use designer paper.
Here's the card I made:
I used a couple of the trees from the paper smooches Warm Hearts stamp set.
There are four trees together on the stamp, but because I was going to paper piece
them by stamping on designer paper and then cutting them out there was no problem...
however... the little tree was in the front of the bigger tree
and I wanted them to be the other way around.
So , I put tape on the edge of the little tree that I didn't want to show....inked the stamp
removed the tape and then stamped on the plaid paper. 
Then all I had to do was fill in the blank spot with a black marker.
Oh yea, a word to the wise... don't forget to remove the tape after you ink up the stamp!
Duh...first time I forgot !
To finish the card I stamped the trees again on the red candy cane stripe paper
 so I could cut out the heart and paper piece it on the big tree.
Then added a strip of the candy cane stripe paper and stamped the sentiment above.
I use that teeny tiny wishes stamp set from Stampin'Up all the time.
It needed some shine , so I put Glossy Accents on the heart.
It took longer to tell you about it than it did to make it!
Thanks for stopping by.
till next time,
