CCMC311 Confetti Celebration

It’s Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  We used a fun sketch this week.


I decided to let the Playful Palette DSP do most of the work on my card and combined it with the Confetti Celebrations word art stamp set and Layered Squares Framelits!


CCMC411 Confetti Celebration


Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Emerald Envy, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Very Vanilla.
  • The Playful Palette DSP was cut with the Scalloped Layered Square Framelits, I used one print for two squares and then flipped it over to the other side for the other two.
  • Hooray from Confetti Celebrations was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Emerald Envy, then punched with the 2″ Circle Punch and placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • It’s Your Day was stamped with Memento Black on a 3/8″ strip of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and cut with a flag end.
  • A bow was made from the Emerald Envy Thick Twine and some Rhinestones are scattered on the front.

I really love this paper! The cross hatch pattern is totally my favorite from this stack and it looks awesome in Peekaboo Peach! I really like that you topped it off with the fun emerald circle and little emerald bow.

Love how the Emerald just pops off the card! I wasn’t sure I was going to like that color, but it’s growing on me!

What a great idea to portray the “hooray” greeting in circle form! It really makes your card go “Here I am! Look at me!”
