Two Cards for the Same Challenge!












Hi Again Stampers!
I just had to create two cards using the cake inspiration photo from Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge CCMC129 (http://www.createwithconnieandmary.com)- I just love all of the bows and they were calling out to
me:-)   Please see the earlier post for the first card that also uses the sketch challenge from Stamping 411 with the Operators. 

To create this card:
Using the Big Shot and the Perfect Dots EF, emboss a piece of Whisper White and spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint. 

Tie three bows using 5/8” Marina Mist Satin Ribbon.   Create three floral images using the round stamp from Just Believe with Marina Mist ink, punch out with the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint (hint- I use the heat gun to dry the Frost White Simmer Paint mixture with 70% alcohol quicker).  Add a pearl to the center of each image. 

Stamp the sentiment in Marina Mist and adhere to the lower bottom of the card.  Adhere the ribbons and floral images to finish off this quick card.

Stamp Sets:  Just Believe, Heard from the Heart  
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Marina Mist
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Dots EF, 1 3/8” Circle Punch, 5/8” Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Frost White Shimmer Paint

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope you have a joyful Christmas celebrating the birth of Christ!

Two beautiful cards Julie. I'm so happy to see you use the Marina Mist for Christmas.......not many did that and it's a perfect color. Makes you think of snow. Great way you adapted the Just Believe set too. Beautiful!
