CCMC224 – Winter Wonderland

Woohoo!!!  Time for a color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary.  Since we are just getting ready to start our Holiday/Winter Card "Create"tions Edition, I thought I'd use these non-traditional colors for a winter/holiday card! 



I used Winter Wonderland, these little ducks are just TOO cute!  Lots of details and texture on here, too!



Here's the details:

  1. Base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Lucky Limeade folded in half.
  2. 3 3/4 x 4 layer of So Saffron on top.
  3. I ran the 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 layer of Whisper White thru the Big Shot with the Elegant Lines Folder to emboss.
  4. I cut an Apothecary Accent Framelit from Island Indigo and used the piercing tool and mat around the edges.
  5. I stamped the ducks with Black Stazon and watercolored with my AquaPainter and So Saffron, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Stampin' Write Markers.
  6. I stamped Merry Christmas from Family Reunion in Island Indigo on So Saffron strip and cut the flag end.
  7. Finally, I tied a bow from Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon and placed an Island Indigo Printed Brad in the center.

Isn't this a fun, whimsical Christmas/winter card?  I think so!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  AND…don't forget!  We're getting ready to start our Cards "Create"tions on Sunday…you won't want to miss the fabulous cards our designers have made!  Here are the details!

I like how the Elegant Lines Embossing brings out the other layers and love the paper piercing along with the banner!

Cute card!  I would not think of using ducks on a Christmas card or these colors but it certainly works!  I'm excited to see the new class too! Thanks,
