BtCR challenge - May

As promised yesterday, here are the Scandinavian style cards for the May Beat the Christmas Rush challenge.

I made one of these, using a hearts border, for the 52 cards challenge a while ago and thought I would use some of the other borders from the same Waltzing Mouse set.  I stamped and embossed, using a new-to-me embossing powder - Wow detail Red, it is fantastic and I can highly recommend it, you can see the stitches in the stamped image!  I then stamped various sentiments in black versafine above the border and matted onto silver before adhering to the card blank.

White space is something I find difficult - I do think these cards are simple and elegant, but that urge to fill the space is still there!
