It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week is a pretty piece of pottery…not sure if it is a vase or a drinking glass but I love the leaves design.
I went searching for a stamp set that had leaves similar to the inspiration piece and decided to use Christmas Season for a non-Christmas looking card!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Orchid Oasis cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White was stamped with one leaf stem randomly full-strength with Orchid Oasis. The second leaf stem was stamped off randomly with Orchid Oasis Ink for a lighter version.d The berries were stamped with Daffodil Delight Ink randomly in the background to fill in.
- A 1-1/2 x 4 piece of In Color 6×6 DSP was added to a 1-3/4 x 4 piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock and added to the front.
- Some Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Ribbon was tied in a large bow and added towards the left side of the DSP.
- The greeting from Happiness Abounds was stamped with Orchid Oasis Ink on Basic White and cut with the Seasonal Labels Die. It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Three yellow Glossy Dots were added to the background.
I think that “Christmas” set worked great for this challenge, don’t you? Amazing how different it looks in non-traditional colors! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
