CCMC341 Indescribable Gift

On Create with Connie and Mary’s Thursday Challenge, we have a wonderful sketch challenge for you to try!


And here’s my card.  I love the huge flower image in Stampin’ Up!’s Indescribable Gift stamp set!


CCMC341 Indescribable Gift

Here are the details:

  • The base card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Pink Pirouette.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, stamp the flower image towards the bottom left side with Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Color with Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake and Wild Wasabi Blendabilities Markers.
  • Across the top, add a 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of Something Borrowed Designer Paper.
  • Stamp the greeting on a 1-1/2 x 2 piece of Pink Pirouette with Tuxedo Black Ink, cut a flag end.  Cut a 1/2 x 2-1/2 piece of coordinating DSP and cut a flag end.  Place both banners on the front top right with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Wrap Wild Wasabi Thick Twine around the Whisper White twice and secure in the back.  Tie a bow around the front right side twine.
  • Adhere Whisper White panel to front of base card.

I adore your use of designer paper here with the pretty lacy strip along the top and the little coordinating banner. Your coloring is awesome too! These colors look so soft and pretty together!
