Less is More one layer card - Embossing No. 2

Isn't it fab when you can find the time to craft?  I've been lucky enough this week to do just that and have another play at Less is More but this time it's for the men in our lives.  The challenge is to make a one layer card with embossing which can be dry and/or heat.

My first card is using the Motorcycle stamp which is great for blokes.  I started with a blank card base in concord crush.  I then scored 4 lines along the bottom to create a road/ground for my motorcycle.

I stamped the motorcycle in versamark ink then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

The sentiment is from Just Believe which I also stamped with versamark then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

My second card is a night of navy card base.  I used my cuttlebug to emboss some swirly waves onto the bottom of the card.  Then stamped Sail Away in Versamark and this time heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I think this image really suits being embossed this way.

Both these stamps are currently available in the mini catalogue.  The motorcycle is £7.95 and Sail Away is £8.95.  Great additions to your collection.  If you'd like to purchase them then you can e mail me here -

Thank you to everyone for looking and hope you are having a great week. x

Two fab cards though, as an ex biker chick, my personal preference is for the first one!

2 great cards for men - I'm always short of ideas for man cards. REALLY like the dry embossing ideas, especially the waves.
