LIM #329 Geometric

I've had this Gummiapan die from Swedish House Crafts for a while, and this I decided was the perfect time to use it for the geometric challenge at Less is More.

My first thought was to take TH ink cubes and the new adorable archival ink minis and simply ink through the diecut. I used another die cut so I didn't get ink on the frame.

As I was cutting the die and seeing all those little bits of waste another idea came to mind, which is this one.
Finally I had some scrap from my practice run at the first card and it seemed a pity to waste it, so here it is......
These are the some of items I used in making these cards.

Loving the geometric look of these cards, and great colors too. I think these sketches would make great masculine cards!
By the way, congrats on making the Swedish House Crafts DT. I know I'm a little late, but remember reading about in on Instagram!

Very fab array of cards Linby ! I love the grungy style of your stamping inside the frames in the first card, it adds another dimension ! The second card is very beautiful, makes me think to a contemporary painting ! And the third one is very creative, with all these scraps you managed to make a fabulous card ! Love it ! Thanks for sharing and for playing along with us at Less is More !

What a great die, and it looks great in black with the bold colours too. I love that you didn't waste anything and made the third one too.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

Bold and beautiful and what a fun combination of colour, funky sentiments and a great die. Thanks for playing along with Less is More this week and it's great to see how you created the other designs too.

The perfect designs for the challenge. Love your modern interpretation! Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

These are all winning designs to me, Linby! You are such an inspiration for a) using all the bits involved in making a card, and b) doing it ALL AT ONCE!! That is something I'm going to try harder to do, rather than toss the "extras" in the Box of The Dead, lol! Hugs, Darnell
