Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Christmas” and we each create a simple card every week using that theme! We are definitely on the countdown to Christmas now!
The Classic Cloche Bundle was added late to my stash, but I really LOVE it! The two (three) step stamping make it EASY to create detailed looking images like this one!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Basic White, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Real Red cardstock is added on top.
- The 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Basic White was stamped with the houses from Classic Cloche Stamp Set outline image in Memento Black Ink, then the tree background in Soft Sea Foam Ink, then the houses in Real Red Ink. They are SO easy to line up!
- Some Wink of Stella was added to the roofs and ground for a little sparkle.
- The greeting from Classic Cloche stamp set was also stamped in Memento Black.
- Some Wonderful Gems were added to the background for a little bling!
I really don’t have ANY suggestions on how to make this even simpler! This would make an EXCELENT last minute card making option! Make sure to check out what Mary did this week for her “Christmas” Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary! Stay tune next week for another Creatively Simple card!
