CCMC 181

Hello Friends! Are you ready for Christmas? It won't be long now!! We are on our way to Kansas to spend Christmas with my family. We will get there later tonight and then my sister and her family and my brother will be coming this weekend. I am looking forward to a really restful few days! Even though I am on the road for the next several hours, it is still Thursday and time for another great challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. This week they are challenging us with color. Take a look!

This isn't a lot of color but it is still fabulous and I found it quite challenging! The challenge colors are Whisper White and Silver Glimmer. I did make a few different cards but decided I liked this one best. Take a look!

I did decided that I needed to add black for the greeting. My card base is Whisper White. The next layer is also Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Northern Flurry embossing folder. Then I took a piece of Whisper White organza ribbon and taped one end behind this piece and glued the piece to the card base. I tacked the ribbon to the front of the card and flagged the bottom. I punched a piece of the silver glimmer paper with the scallop circle punch and popped it up over the ribbon. I stamped the greeting from Season of Joy onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I popped this up onto the silver scallop piece. And that's allI did! Very simple but elegant!

While this is a busy time of year, I do hope you can squeeze some time in to play along with the challenge! Need more inspiration? Head on over to the Create with Connie and Mary site to see all the great samples and then upload your project so that we can all see! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  8. Hello Debra,

    it took me a while to find the creator of this beautiful card.
    Friends of me send me this photo - they want that I made this card as a sample for them.
    This friend made a lot of cards and they donate all the money for a orphanage in Thailand.
    I show this card on my blog with a link to you.
    Smiles and all the best from Germany
