Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…we are kicking off the new year with the theme of “LOVE”. Time to get ready for Valentine’s Day, right? We’ll create a simple card every Tuesday in January using that theme!
- Base is 4-1/4 x 11 MInt Macaron cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Country Floral Lane Designer Paper was added on top.
- A 3 x 3-3/4 piece of Basic White was cut towards the top with the Stylish Shapes square. The greeting was stamped with Real Red Ink on the bottom portion. It was added to the front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The cat was stamped with Memento Black Ink on scrap Basic White and hand-cut, then added to the “window”. The eyes were colored with Dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.
- Three of the small hearts were punched from Real Red using the Country Bouquet Punch. They were added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Small Heart Pearls were added to the punched hearts.
