Wow! First of December already!!! This year has flown by! It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. We’ve done a couple sketches with these angled layers, but here’s another variation!
Even though Christmas trees are normally green, I wanted to shake things up with my blue Christmas tree theme!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Balmy Blue cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 3 x 4-1/2 layer of Basic White is placed at an angle on the front.
- The snowflake pattern in Storybook Gnomes DSP is added over the Basic White.
- The tree from Christmas Lights was stamped with VersaMark on Balmy Blue cardstock and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. It was cut with the Twinkling Lights Dies, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A 3/8 X 3-3/4 strip of Silver Foil was added across the front towards the bottom.
- Noel from Framed & Festive Stamp Set (only available while supplies last) is stamped with Pacific Point Ink on Basic White cardstock and cut with the Stylish Shapes Dies. It was added to the Silver Foil strip.
- An Adhesive Backed Star was added to the top of the tree!
I love how different this tree looks in blue! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary
