Welcome back to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. Look at this wonderful, decorated cookie to inspire you!
I was surprised how well Lost Lagoon worked as the background for my tree! Almost looks like a blue spruce we have in our yard! The Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Paper is a hidden gem, too! I love this silvery white background!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Lost Lagoon cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Snowflake Magic Specialty DSP was added on top (love the silvery look!)
- The base of the tree was cut from Pecan Pie cardstock with the Merriest Trees Dies and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The pink Sheer Ribbon Combo was looped back and forth, then adhered to the background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The tree was stamped on Basic White cardstock with Lost Lagoon Ink base and White Craft Ink for the details. Cut with the Merriest Trees largest tree die and added to the front over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The tree was decorated with small light pink and gold Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins and large dark pink Adhesive Backed Sequins Trio.
- The greeting from Merriest Trees was stamped with Berry Bliss Ink on 1/2 x 3-1/2 strip of Bubble Bath cardstock and the ends flag trimmed. It was added across the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
SOOO pretty and sparkly! For a class, I’d use the ornaments that are with the stamps/dies and stamp them in Berry Bliss, Bubble Bath and Crushed Curry Inks. But for this special card, I love all the blingy sequins! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
