Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Sparkle”. It’s the PERFECT theme for this month, don’t you think? We’ll create a simple card every Tuesday in December using that theme!
I went looking thru my designer paper and ran across this beautiful plaid Blushing Bride print! I thought it would be perfect with some white glimmer branches and pinecones! I also LOVE the Framed & Festive greetings set…make sure you get it before it goes away at the end of the month (or while supplies last!)
- Base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Basic White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 3-3/4 x 5 piece of Awash in Beauty Designer Paper was added on top.
- The White Glimmer Paper was cut with the Christmas Pinecones Die (only a portion used) and added to the front with Tombow Monoadhesive Glue.
- The greeting from Framed & Festive Stamp Set was stamped with VersaMark on Basic White cardstock and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder, then punched with the Decorative Circle Punch. It was added at an angle on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The pinecone backgrounds were cut from Crumb Cake cardstock with the Christmas Pinecone Dies and the detail portion with the White Glimmer Paper. They were added next to the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some silver Simply Elegant Trim was tied in a bow and added between the pinecones.
- A trio of white Seasonal Sequins were added in the background.
I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! Make sure to check out Mary’s Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary!
