CCMC Saturday Blog Hop – Favorite Christmas Thinlit/Framelit

It’s Saturday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! Our design team theme is featuring “Favorite Christmas Framelit/Thinlit” this week.  OK…it is REALLY hard to choose JUST ONE from the fabulous Holiday Catalog!  But, I narrowed it down to one of the my first favorites, Hearts Come Home stamp set with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits.

 

I seem to be on a “simple” card design kick right now.  I love the white-on-white elements on this card, too!

 

 

 

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • The Hearts Come Home greeting was inked with the Night of Navy and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped in the lower right corner of the 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White.
  • A length of Silver Edged Ribbon was placed across the top of the layer and adhered in the back.
  • The largest oval from Layered Ovals cut the navy print in Naturally Eclectic Designer Paper…it thought it looked like a snowy background.
  • The section of the Whisper White Hometown Greetings Edgelit was adhere along the bottom of the oval.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The entire Whisper White layer was also popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the base card.

 

That’s it!!!  But that touch of silver sparkle is SO pretty against all the white!  I absolutely love this card!  And so easy to mass produce for your holiday card!

CCMC474 Hearts Come Home

It is a wonderful sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary…you will absolutely LOVE what our Challenge Team did with it!

Here’s what I did with it:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded to form base card.
  • The greeting from Hearts Come Home was stamped with Memento Black Ink on the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Dapper Denim cardstock.
  • The “moon” is the largest circle from Layering Circles Framelits, cut from Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged around the edges with So Saffron Ink.  The bottom portion was cut off.
  • Santa and his reindeer were stamped with Memento Black Ink on the moon.
  • The row of houses from Hometown Greetings Edgelits were cut from Basic Black cardstock and added over the moon on the front of the card.
  • A strip of gold from Yeah of Cheer Washi Tape was added to the bottom of the Basic Black cardstock for a little bling!
