CCMC 175

Good morning, Friends! It's time for another great challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these colors!

Our challenge colors are Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, and Basic Black. I do like the swatches of color together. But what to do with them? Well, I have been cranking out the Christmas cards lately so that's what I went with. Check it out!

This is a very simple card. I love this stamp set and how easy it is to use! This set would definitely be a great one to use to mass produce those Christmas cards! I started with a card base of textured Cherry Cobbler card stock. Then I took a piece of More Mustard and scalloped the bottom of it and wrapped a piece of Basic Black narrow taffeta ribbon around the bottom. This is glued flat to the card front. Then I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler and stamped the image and greeting from Come to Bethlehem set in black StazOn. Then I sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler and glued it to a piece of Basic Black card stock. This panel is popped up on the More Mustard. The final touch was to add a rhinestone to the star. Super easy! 

Please be sure to check out the rest of the design team at Create with Connie and Mary to get more inspiration using these colors! I do hope that you will play along with us this week and post your card to the site so that we can all see what fabulous things you do with these colors! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  4. This is so elegant! The way you have framed the Cherry with the mustard really accents the image.
