Wow! Aren't the weeks FLYING by…here it is the first of December! Oh my! We even had a few snow flurries yesterday. I am SO not ready for THAT! It is also time for another Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary! The ideas from the Design Team are FABULOUS this week, so make sure you stop by and see them all! PLUS we have an exciting prize to award just for playing along with our challenges during December…but check out the details over there!
This was a FUN sketch…I knew what I wanted to do when I first saw it.
And my card…a sweet treat just in time for the holidays! Plum pudding punch art! Now, I don't think I've ever HAD plum pudding…but it certainly LOOKS good!
I started with a base of Garden Green cardstock. I added some Holly Berry Designer Paper layered on Real Red. Then I cut two strips of Real Red cardstock. I stamped Merry Christmas in Early Espresso across the bottom and added the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. I made my Plum Pudding by punching Early Espresso with the 2 1/2" Circle, then used the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. I cut another 2 1/2" Circle from Very Vanilla and ran it thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots folder. Then I trimmed the bottom with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. I added the Holly leaves from the Stocking Accents Die in Garden Green, then a Red Glimmer Berry.
I thought it made a really fun card! Again, make sure you check out the other Challenge Team members over on Create with Connie and Mary! Then grab your stamps and play along! We love to see your creations!
