It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. The month of July we do our Case the Catalog Challenges! These are always fun, and we love to see what the Challenge Team comes up with! They can copy the color combo, the stamp set, the layout…or any combination of the above! Lots of creative expression.
HORSE & SLEIGH
I’m using a brand-new Online Exclusive called Horse & Sleigh stamp set with dies. Of course, I love the horse and sleigh which is the primary focus of this set…but there are a couple fun trees in this set that shouldn’t be left out!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Cherry Cobbler cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- The 3-3/4 x 4-3/4 piece of Basic White cardstock was stamped with the large tree in Mossy Meadow Ink. The trunk was colored with Light & Dark Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends.
- The “snow bank” was cut twice from Basic White cardstock using the smaller die, then cut apart and added to the base of the trees.
- The greeting from Horse & Sleigh stamp set was stamped with Cherry Cobbler Ink on 3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock, then layered on a 1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some silver Simply Elegant Trim was tied in a bow and added to the tree on the right.
Pretty simple design, but the layout is so fun! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary
