CCMC181 – Scenic Season

It is the Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary, and WOW…do we have some STUNNING cards for you to see using the Color Challenge of Whisper White and Silver Glimmer.  You can also use Silver Embossing or Silver Brushed Cardstock if you don't have the Glimmer.  But…that Glimmer REALLY sparkles!




I pulled out a set that I haven't used at all this holiday season…Scenic Season.  I used it a LOT last year.  But, it seemed to be perfect for this color challenge!  I also am a little tired of making Christmas Cards…all mine are out in the mail.  So…I did mine as a New Year's Card…perfect for sending out after the Christmas holiday!





The base card is Whisper White and I cut another piece of Whisper White 1/2" shorter for a layer on top.  The Scenic Season image is embossed with Silver Embossing Powder across the top.  I added the numbers 2012 (Timeless Type Dies) for the New Year in Silver Glimmer Paper.  I also cut 1/4" trim pieces for across the top and bottom of this layer.  Finally, I stamped Happy New Year from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in Basic Black.  I think it turned out lovely!


But, make sure you check out the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team this week…STUNNING cards…I'm not kidding!  Then grab your silver and white materials and play along!  We'd love to see what you do with this color challenge!

This is perfect. New Year's means bling in my opinion and you have certainly achieved a bling-tastic creation here! Merry Christmas Connie!
