CCMC 273

Good morning, Friends! It's Thursday and time for another fun challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have a sketch challenge! Take a look!

And my card:

I had fun creating this one! Love the cut out circle! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Cherry Cobbler cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and folded in half
  • Layer of Old Olive cut at 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and run through the Big Shot using the Styled Stripes embossing folder
  • Layer of Season of Style designer paper and punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch then adhered to Old Olive layer
  • Adhere panel to card base
  • Stamp greeting from Wishing You in Chocolate Chip onto a strip of Crumb Cake cut at 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" and adhere to card
  • Use the Circles #2 die to cut a 2" circle from silver glimmer paper then pop up onto card
  • Stamp gifts image from Wishing You onto Whisper White using Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler, and Old Olive markers, cut out and pop up onto card
  • Add a rhinestone to the bow on the center gift
Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to see what the other designers did with this fabulous sketch! I hope that you will be inspired to play along with us this week!
