Wow! Another Thursday has rolled around and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. I love this week’s sketch!
BEAUTY OF FRIENDSHIP
I used the tree from the Beautiful Trees Dies instead of a rectangle…and love how it looks in it’s wintery garb! And I’ve always loved red cardinals…he really pops out against the gray!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Smoky Slate cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded to form the base card.
- A 1-1/2 x 3-3/4 piece of Basic White was torn across the top and added to a 3-3/4 x 5 piece of Peaceful Place Designer Paper.
- The DSP was layered onto a 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 piece of Real Red cardstock.
- The tree from Beautiful Trees Dies was cut from Smoky Slate, then embossed with the Bark Embossing Folder. It was added to the front with slivers of Foam Strip Adhesive.
- The shadow of the tree from Beauty of tree stamp set was stamped with stamped-off Smoky Slate Ink.
- Thinking of You from Beauty of Friendship stamp set was stamped with Basic Gray Ink on scrap Basic White cardstock, then cut with the label die in the Beautiful Trees Dies. It is added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The bird was cut with the Beautiful Tree Dies from Real Red cardstock and added to the tree.
- Some Subtle Shimmer Sequins were added in the background.
This would be a EASY card to duplicate for bulk Christmas cards…the dies do most of the work! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary!
