Less Is More - White Space?

Lots going on today, including a new challenge over at Less is More.  This challenge is all about white space that is not actually white.  This was a bit challenging for me as I really like to use white or beige for most of my cards.  However, after trying out a few things, I decided to go with yellow and red.

I started by stamping my sentiment. I then cut a few hearts from pink cardstock and added a bit distressed ink.  I wanted one heart to pop out so I cut it from glitter paper.

I then used the inlaid die technique to place the pink/red hearts down then popped my glitter heart on foam tape.

Would love to see what you come up with for this challenging challenge!

  • Bazzill Cardstock:  Candy Hearts, Sour Lemon
  • Glitter Paper
  • Versacolor Satin Red Ink
  • Reverse Confetti:  Tons to Say
  • Lawn Fawn Dies:  Hearts


  1. Susan, love this card. Arent those two colours perfect together. Just perfect

  2. This is fab Susan. The red really pops against the yellow and adding one heart in a different colour is inspired. It's a beauty of a card.

  3. Lovely CAS card! I love how you've added the glitter card heart in the centre. xx

  4. I know what you mean about white/beige (or in my case white/cream)! This one is going to an interesting challenge for me! Your card is lovely. The dies really pop and having one in glitter is a fantastic finishing touch, as is the stitched border. Love it!

  5. What a fabulous colour combo Susan, red and yellow are so cheery together and you have made a spectacular card using them.
    Love it!

  11. Susan this yellow gives a warm, happy white space and your card looks just fab!

  12. I would never have thought to choose that colour combo but it totally works and the yellow adds a real cheeriness to your lovely card. The glimmer heart is a cute touch too!

  13. Such a pretty and elegant card and the colours work so well together.
