CCMC 220

Hello everyone and welcome to Friday! I loves me some Friday! What are you all up to for the weekend? I’m going into the city on Sunday to drop off an order and see some friends. Tonight the last of my family flies back to London. It was so much fun having so many of them here all at once. I hope to see them again soon!

Today’s post is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a color challenge…

I was going to do a birthday card but at the last minute I decided that I would make a Christmas card! The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Pink Pirouette with the Woodgrain Background Stamp inked in Pink Pirouette. Before I adhered it to the card I stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler. For the flagged banners and mittens I used the Make a Mitten Stamp Set. The banners are stamped in Pink Pirouette on Whisper White, Baja Breeze on Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler on Cherry Cobbler. If you line the borders up they give you some really nice patterns. The mittens are stamped in Baja Breeze and backed by a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder after I cut it out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. I also cut out a piece of Baja Breeze and used the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce the edge. They are all mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the softness of the color combination and hope that you enjoy this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge card. Thank you for stopping by and have a crafty day! 🙂
