Sweet Season


This is a card I made when Mary Brown and I were doing sketch challenges about a month ago.  I pulled the colors from the Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper…Rose Red, Bermuda Bay and Kraft (instead of Sahara Sand).  I made a simpler version for my swap card at the Cincinnati Regionals (I left off the brads and designer paper and expanded the Bermuda Bay layer.) 

This uses the snowflake and words from the set, Sweet Season, that we received free at Convention!  I love the words in this!  I plan on using it on my tags of baked goods I make at Christmas time.  For this card, I started with the base of Rose Red and added the Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper (rounded the corners first with the Corner Rounder punch) to the background.  I ran the Bermuda Bay cardstock through my Big Shot with the Petals a Plenty Impressions Folder and added it over the DSP.  I cut a strip of Kraft cardstock and rounded the two right hand corners, stamped the words in Basic Black.  I stamped the snowflake in Bermuda Bay on Very Vanilla and punched it with my Scallop Circle Punch.   I layered it on the Scallop Circle from the Pennant Bigz XL die (it layers perfectly!)  On the ones I made for the Cincinnati Regionals, I added a Crystal Brad in the center.  For this one, I added a trio of the Vanilla Jumbo Brads along the right side. I love these non-traditional colors for a holiday card!

I’m all ready for a new round of Stamp Clubs tomorrow night!  These gals are FUN and I always look forward to having them!  I know they will LOVE the projects!
