Chriistmas in July- Three Challenges in One!
I love the sketches at Create with Connie and Mary and this week’s CCMC157 Sketch Challenge is no exception. As usual, the Design Team have created such a wide variety of cards with this sketch- the ideas are wonderful!
I had committed to make ten cards a month through November with the CCC11 Splitcoast Stamper’s Christmas Card Challenge and since this is the April submission, I have been behind on my commitment:-)
This week's Paper Player PP54 Christmas in July Challenge is just what I needed to start my cards again! :-)
Hopefully this Clean and Simple (CAS) card would be easy to reproduce in quantity and will be the first of several more designs to get me back on track!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Northern Flurry EF and cut a strip of snowflakes using the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die. Lightly sponge the snowflakes with Island Indigo (a fabulous new In-Color for 2011-12) and apply 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds.
Punch the edge of the Island Indigo strip with the Eyelet Border Punch and attach a piece of 5/8” Old Olive Satin Ribbon. Mount onto the embossed panel and attach the snowflakes to the panel with the Old Olive Glimmer Brads (Brights Collection).
Stamp the sentiment with Island Indigo and apply the Rhinestones to finish off the card.
