Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “GREETINGS”, and we each create a simple card every Tuesday using that theme!
Wow! It has been a WHILE since I’ve used my Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set! But I wanted a stem of flowers that would “disappear” in the background and allow the greeting to be the focal point according to our Creatively Simple Challenge! It fit the bill!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Basic White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Parakeet Party cardstock was added on top.
- The 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 piece of Basic White cardstock was stamped with the flower stems from Dragonfly Garden in Parakeet Party Ink.
- A 1 x 3-3/4 piece of In Color plaid Parakeet Party DSP was added across the front.
- The Decorative Circle was punched from Parakeet Party cardstock and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The Dragonfly Garden greeting was stamped with Memento Black Ink and cut with the Stylish Shapes circle Die, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of In Color Matte Dots were added in the background.
That Decorative Circle is really cute, don’t you think? Check out what Mary did with this week’s Creatively Simple Greeting Theme over on Create with Connie and Mary!
