Hello! It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. It’s a fun sketch again this week!
LEAVES OF HOLLY
I love the poinsettia prints in the Boughs of Holly Designer Paper and let them do all the work on my card this week! The depth of these prints is so realistic!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Basic White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The top portion is embossed with the Wintry Embossing Folder.
- A 2-1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Boughs of Holly was cut, then layered on a 2-1/2 x 5-1/4 piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock. It was adhered diagonally across the front of the base card, then trimmed off the sides.
- The greeting from Leaves of Holly stamp set was stamped with Mossy Meadow Ink diagonally.
- A trio of gold Festive Pearls were added to the background.
Quick and easy…but perfect to whip up a bunch for the holiday season! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary
