CCMC330 – Winter Memories

Today over on Create with Connie and Mary, we have a fabulous color challenge!  I'm so excited to see what wonderful cards you all come up with!  Last year we did Silver Glimmer and Whisper White for the holidays.  This time we are using the new Champagne Glimmer and Very Vanilla combination!



And here is my card, using Winter Memories!  I kept if very simple because the Glimmer Paper and the Gold Embossing make it look so rich!



Here are the details:

  1. I cut Very Vanilla to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half for my base card.
  2. I added another layer of Very Vanilla cut to 5 1/4 x 4.
  3. I embossed Christmas Blessing from More Merry Messages with Gold Embossing Powder on the bottom right.
  4. I cut a 2 x 4 piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper, then cut the flag on the end, it is placed on top.
  5. I cut a Very Vanilla Label Framelit (3rd from smallest) and embossed the skates with Gold Embossing powder on top.
  6. I added a Gold Glimmer Brad to the center of the holly, the placed the skates piece on the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I wish you could see how sparkly and rich this looks!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week with the color challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Then grab your stamps and play along!

You had me stumped on this color challenge with what to do about ink!  I didn't even think of Gold Embossing powder!  I had to sneak in just a little Soft Suede on my card. 
Beautiful card Connie!

Very pretty!  Love how you embossed the ice skates on the framelit.  I like how the gold EP matches so nicely with the champagne paper.

Such an elegant use of the challenge colours and a fabulously embossed sentiment – I really love this stamp set but haven't purchased it (as yet!)

So cute how you "hung up" your skates with the glimmer brad and beautiful banner/flag!
