Less is More Punches or Die Cuts Challenge

The challenge for this week at Less is More is to use punches or die cuts. I have also combined this with Crop Chocolate's challenge to use one shape in place of another. The shape I have chosen is a heart and have used that shape to form shamrocks. All the hearts were punched out, which satisfies the Less is More challenge.
The center plaid square was made with a stripe stamp and three different colors of green. I stamped then rotated 90 degrees and stamped again to achieve a plaid design. The edges of the white background cardstock were cut with pinking shears and the square mounted on a darker green square with inked edges. I ran the hearts and hand cut stems through my Xyron then put the shamrocks together on the plaid square and card base. Some stickles were added for sparkle.
As always, thanks for looking at this card!


  1. I love the way you made the shamrocks out of hearts Ruth and they look lovely sprinkled across your central square.
