Less is More with Neutrals -- and a Tuesday Mailing

"Less is More"

(After I posted this, I studied it and realized my cards really aren't CAS; there's too much going on for Less is More.  However, I appreciate the color challenge and the opportunity to use that challenge for my Tuesday cards.)  

It's a color challenge for this week's Less is More -- neutrals.  I've grown to love using kraft color for cards, and this was no exception.  Black for me is a neutral; it's a color I would probably wear every day during the winter, if I could.  Here, it's used as an accent on my cards.  (I made two cards for my weekly Tuesday mailing to two friends.  I've been mailing weekly to one for four years, and for the other, for two years.)  

The feature of the cards is the Music Star by Hero Arts on a layer of dry-embossed kraft cardstock.  "Happy" is a delicate die from Simon Stays Stamp.

Your friends must dearly look forward to these Tuesday mailings. I surely would. My only distant friends are other stampers/bloggers. Even family lives close. Cannot complain about that. Great cards, Evelyn!

Well they DO have a lot of white space so you might well get away with it, they're fab anyway
