You Nailed It!

Happy Friyay!

This week’s theme for the Less is More challenge is ‘use a real object’. I’ve been doing a lot of DIY recently so I decided to go with a nail! I wanted to use the phrase ‘you nailed it’ but I don’t have a stamp of that – although I bet I will find it in one of my stamp sets tomorrow! Anyway, I printed it off on white card on my home printer and then stamped the Altenew ‘yay’ above it using Delicata black shimmer ink – it is so shimmery in real life!

I used a die from the Hero Arts 12 point star set as the focal point and then stuck the nail on it using some washi tape…. not sure how long it will hold!

I then stuck the panel on a background that I had embossed with a Sizzix/Tim Holtz folder.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I love this, Lucie – it is just so fun and clever. The idea of using a real nail with the punny sentiment really made me smile 🙂


  2. Wow ! Stunning card and such a fabulous take on our challenge ! Very creative and clever ! Love the white and black design too ! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More !


  3. Fabulous idea and perfectly gender neutral too. Love how the embossed background echoes the central star too.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x


  4. Saw this on IG and love it. So creative and clever. Perfect sentiment. Really cool masculine card. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More. 😊 Trina xx
    ps. I replied to your question but not sure if you saw it…NBUS stands for Never Been Used Stuff
