DCM Shrink To Fit

Here's this weeks Daring Card Makers Challenge.

I used to be able to make cards with lots of "white space" around the designs, but lately when I've tried to do this my cards just look sooooo naked!
So this week I'd like you to think small - not small cards, but small spaces of embellishment on regular sized cards.
You are allowed to cover no more than a 5x5cms area of your card with paper or embellishment - the rest of the card must be left plain.
How you use those valuable cms is up to you. So you may choose to split up those cms to use around your card, or use them in a block or a line. It might help to cut a few 5x5cm squares then cut those up to work out good ways of using your allotment. Making your whole card a miniscule 5x5cms is NOT an option!! Lets have no cheating (I know what you lot are like.....),but because I'm feeling generous, I'm going to let you add a SIMPLE greeting as extra to your 5x5 allowance! :-)

This must be the simplest card I've made to date. I used a scrap piece of paper and card. I trimmed them both to 5cm squares and then divided each one into 4 triangles. I used 2 triangles of each and stuck them together to measure 5cm x 5cm, because there's a gap in the middle I could add the Crystal Sticker Elements.

This is such a great idea and looks so stylish. Fab for using up scraps and perfect for those "just because" cards that are such a lovely way to keep in touch
