Create with Connie and Mary 227

Happy Thursday! I hope that everyone is enjoying their week. Work is a little hectic and will be until the end of the month. I will be happy when December gets here! Thursday also means that it’s Create with Connie and Mary time! This week we have a shaped card to make. I think this is my first shaped card and it was fun! Here we go…

As soon as I saw the Blossom in the sketch I knew exactly what I was going to do! My card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. I cut two of the largest Labels Collection Framelits Dies and scored about 1/4″ on the top of the back one and adhered the two together with a little Sticky Strip. The background layer is a piece of Pool Party that I also cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Before I adhered it to the base I cut two piece of Basic Black 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and adhered them around the back with Sticky Strip. The stamped image is the new Single Stamp Bold Snowflake that coordinates with the Blossom Punch. I stamped it in Pool Party on Whisper White. For the middle image I stamped the snowflake stamp from the Mixed Medley Host(ess) Stamp Set in Versa-Mark on Basic Black and heat embossed it with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It is then punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. Both if them are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black and “fussy” cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensional pieces adhere it to the card. I love the Pool Party and Basic Black together. They give the card a bold frosty retro look! I hope that enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge. Don’t forget to visit the blog and see what the other talented ladies have come up with. While your at it, make one and post it so I can see your work! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an awesome day! 🙂

  1. Very striking!! The black really makes it all pop!! Love the snowflakes! And I am amazed at how you cut the greeting out! I really love how that looks!

  2. Wonderful card! And I’m so impressed with the fussy cutting around the sentiment. This is so precise it looks like you used a die! I’m really looking forward to working with the DT for the next few months.

  3. Nice! I just put my snowflake together tonight – now I’m ready to stamp with it. And I like how you cut out the Season’s Greetings – I enjoy the detail cutting but I know a lot of people don’t.

  4. Hey Justin! Gorgeous card you’ve created – I’m loving those striking colours together and the texture you’ve added to your first shaped card. I’m super-impressed with your fussy cutting of the sentiment!
