CCMC418 Fresh Fruits

We have a beautiful color challenge for you this week on Create with Connie and Mary!  Check it out!



Here’s what I did using the flower in Fruit Fruits!


CCMC418 Fresh Fruits

The details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Mint Macaron, folded in half.
  • On the 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, two 1 x 3-3/4 pieces off Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper were placed along the top and bottom.
  • Mint Macaron Ribbon was wrapped around the top and tied with a bow.
  • The Whisper White layer was adhered to a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 Rich Razzleberry cardstock layer.
  • A scallop layered circle was cut from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
  • The flower from Fruit Fruits was stamped with Sweet Sugarplum on Whisper White, then outlined with Rich Razzleberry.  The leaves were stamped with Mint Macaron and outlined in Mint Macaron.  They were placed on the Scallop Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Perfect White Accent added to the center.
  • Thank You from Fresh Fruits was stamped with Rich Razzleberry Ink in the lower right corner.

OK…that’s it!  Now check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary!
