CCMC 182

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It's time for another great challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week is a sketch challenge. I hope you will be able to find some time to play along with us! Take a look at this fun sketch!

And here is what I decided to do!

I had to make another snowman card and I do like the way this one turned out! I started with a card base of Riding Hood Red. Then I started with the different blocks from the sketch. The scallop edge is Island Indigo punched with the dotted ribbon scallop punch. Over this is a strip of Island Indigo designer paper. The Whisper White card stock has the snowman stamped from Snow Much Fun in black StazOn. Then I colored him with Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Basic Grey, and Pumpkin Pie markers. Then I stamped the snowball four more times on a scrap piece of Whisper White and cut them out. I popped these up to look like he was juggling them. These are attached with glue dots. Then I ran a piece of Basic Grey card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Snow Burst embossing folder. The flagged piece is Blushing Bride with the greeting stamped in black StazOn. This is popped up over the seam. The snowflake is cut with the Northern Flurry decorative strip die from the silver glimmer paper. I popped this up and added a Basic Grey button with some white baker's twine. A fun card for the upcoming winter months! 

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the design team did with this sketch at Create with Connie and Mary. Then create your own project using the sketch and be sure to upload it to the site so that we can all take a look! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
