Good morning! How are we all doing today? I’m doing ok. The no power and generator thing is getting old fast, but there are people out there a lot worse off than me so I guess I really shouldn’t complain. Sandy definitely left her mark here and it will be felt for a while I’m sure. Thank you to all of my readers for their concern. I really appreciate the comments! You guys rock!
It’s Thursday so it’s Create with Connie and Mary time! This week we have a nice simple sketch…
I changed it up just a little bit but most of the main elements are the same. The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper to the front so that it would be there for when I attached the top piece. A piece of Very Vanilla has the negative tree image cut out with the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies. I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals pop it up on the Cherry Cobbler base. A piece of Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is adhered around either side on the back with Sticky Strip. I used the Ticked Duo Builder Punch to punch out a piece of Gumball Green and adhered it to a pice of Cherry Cobbler that I used the small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack to create the ticket corners on. Two Champagne Glimmer Paper trees punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and give the card a little bling. It’s not a very complicated card to make and I am really liking the negative tree with the DSP behind it. I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for Create with Connie and Mary this week. Thank you so much for spending some time with me today and enjoy the rest of your day!
