Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Week 3 of the Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection just finished up and that means another challenge! This week they are challenging us with a sketch! Take a look!

And my card...

Once again I used the Endless Wishes stamp set. I also used the colors from the Winter Frost designer paper. Love these colors! Here are the card details…

  • Card base is Pool Party cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and folded in half
  • Layer of Smoky Slate cut at 4 1/2 x 3 1/4" 
  • On Smoky Slate layer stamp the snowflakes from Endless Wishes in Smoky Slate, Whisper White and Island Indigo then adhere to card
  • Cut a strip of Island Indigo at 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" and then use the scallop edge border punch to punch the edge
  • Adhere a strip of silver glimmer paper at 1/2" x 5 1/2"
  • Wrap a piece of Pool Party seam binding ribbon around this and then adhere to card
  • Use the 2 1/2" circle punch to punch a circle from Whisper White
  • Stamp "Christmas" with VersaMark ink and emboss with silver emboss powder then stamp snowflake with Pool Party and other words with Island Indigo
  • Adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Add large rhinestone to snowflake and smaller rhinestones below
