CCMC381 Jolly Christmas

It’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  I really loved this sketch a lot!  Our Design Team came up with some EXCELLENT inspiration for you, too!

Here’s my interpretation.  I love the Blackberry Blissh and Silver combination!


CCMC381 Jolly Christmas
Here are the details to recreate this card!

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Whisper White, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Blackberry Bliss embossed with the Boughs and Berries Folder.
  • Across the front is a 1-1/4 x 4 strip of Silver Glimmer Paper.
  • One of the large Silver Metallic Doilies (on sale this week!) is placed on top.
  • The Reindeer was stamped with Blackberry Bliss Ink on Whisper White, then cut out by hand and popped up on the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Believe was stamped with Blackberry Bliss Ink, then the snowflake image stamped with Smoky Slate over it.  It was punched with the Large Oval Punch.  It is also popped up on the front and tucked under the reindeer leg.

Another card that would be easy to mass produce for your Christmas cards!  OK…time to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did over on Create with Connie and Mary!

Just lovely Connie – worth fussy cutting the reindeer, it makes an impressive centrepiece for your card. Very elegant!

The simple layout is a perfect way to get the focus on the deer, and I love your combination of glimmer and foil!
