CCMC 190

Good morning everyone! I hope you are ready for another great challenge from our friends at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenge with a sketch! Take a look at this fun sketch!

I love the tag peeking from behind the main panel! Such a great idea!! So here is what I came up with!

I started with a card base of Soft Suede and adhered a piece of the designer paper from the Everyday Enchantment pack. Then I stamped my image from Fresh Vintage using Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Pool Party markers onto Very Vanilla. I tried to mimic the way the designer paper was colored. I lightly sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. Then I stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Soft Suede. I took a piece of Peach Parfait card stock to the Big Shot and used a Label framelit die to cut it. I cut the Label frame in half and attached each end to the back side of my stamped image. Then on the one end I used a brad from the Everyday Enchantment ribbon and brad pack and poked it through and then I folded a piece of Pool Party seam binding ribbon and used glue dots to attach it to the back of the "tag". This "tag" panel was popped up onto the card. The last thing I did was to stamp the small flower in Peach Parfait onto Very Vanilla and cut it out. I put a mini brad through the center and used a glue dot to adhere it to the main panel. 

I hope that I inspired you to use this wonderful sketch and play along with us at Create with Connie and Mary! We always love to see what you come up with! Don't forget to stop by their blog and see what the other fabulous designers came up with! Thanks for stopping by here and have a super day!

  1. Lovely, Deb! I love how the DSP and the stamped image tie together...almost as if they were seamless! Great working with you on Create!

  2. Oh Deb, this is beautiful! I agree with Lisa that the stamped image looks just like the paper and I love the peach tag up against the soft suede card base. The little butterfly brad is the perfect touch! Beautiful card!
